This short walk through the neighborhood east of the Capitol and north of Lake Monona was settled by German-speaking immigrants in the mid-nineteenth century. The walking tour starts at a former candy factory built in 1901 and continues on to the site of a corner grocery store that served as an anchor for this historic community. The tour continues on to a historic hotel and concludes at a historic marker dedicated to preserving the history of a former hospital.
