the friends of the Saxonia House has published a book!
The Saxonia House, Preserving the Past, Building the Future tells the story of a fascinating house built by German immigrant Ernst Klessig in 1855 in Fillmore, Wisconsin.
Author Michael Besch weaves his factual story based on extensive research in a casual and easy to read collection of topics such as how the site was used by five different families over 150 years, its beer production, and its evolution into agriculture. Anyone with a familiarity with Wisconsin’s German connections will especially enjoy Besch’s version of capturing the American Dream.
