The Stone Barn in Nelson Wisconsin




Can you believe that this farm is the location of one of my favorite restaurants? It's called the Stone Barn. http://www.nelsonstonebarn.com/ The actual restaurant is built inside the remains of a barn dating back to 1896. And it's on a farm resting in the beautiful Mississippi River valley. An absolute favorite area of mine. The brochere for the restaurant states that the area is known as, "Norwegian Valley" I guess because of all the Norwegian settlers. I'm part Norwegian. Unfortunately my ancestors did not settle here. If they did I could eat this yummy pizza all Summer! It's closed for the season now. But I'll be back!

My ancestors did land here. If you go over the bluff from Nelson you get to the small town of Urne which comes from Urness pass. That is were they settled. Those are my old stomping grounds. I grew up a little further over the bluffs in Modena. If you get the chance take the ride. It is worth it. I have not heard of that restuarant. I will have to look it up. By the way Brad Bates contacted me the other day. That is what I love about facebook.
