    175-foot-long Pulpwood Stacker
    located in Cornell, Wisconsin

    Looks like a tipped over oil rig

    the only remaining apparatus of its type in the US
    was designed in England,
    manufactured in Minneapolis,
    used in Cornell from 1913 until 1972
    & unused since 1972

    The Cobban Bridge
    constructed in 1908
    486-foot span
    by the Modern Steel Structural Company of Waukesha, WI
    a two-span Pennsylvania overhead truss type bridge
    oldest of its kind in Wisconsin
    Originally it crossed the Chippewa River
    just upstream from its junction with the Yellow River
    The bridge was dismantled during the construction of the Wissota Dam in 1916

    Between 1916 and 1918,
    the Wisconsin-Minnesota Power & Light Company
    built a hydroelectric dam four miles downstream from the bridge,
    putting the site under water

    During the winters of 1916 and 1917
    the disassembled bridge was hauled here by horse and sled
    with the movers receiving one dollar per ton for the fifteen mile trip

    “Old Abe”
    [COLOR=”PaleGreen”][URL=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Abe”]http:wikipedia.org/Old_Abe[/URL][/COLOR]
    the famous eagle mascot of the 8th Wisconsin Infantry
    Taken from its nest when only four months old
    the eagle had been purchased and presented to the regiment
    then preparing to go to the front
    “Old Abe” was given a place next to the regiment flag
    where he remained for the next three years.

    The eagle died in 1881 and was stuffed and mounted for public display
