Madeline Island Murals

Learn Madeline Island history while strolling downtown La Pointe.

The Angus Cheese House and Transportation murals are located at the Madeline Island Heritage Center, 273 Colonel Woods Avenue. The Peterson Night mural is located at Island Carvers,  N662 Main Street. The Poppy mural is located behind the Parkside Condominiums, Main Street across from Joni’s Beach.

All murals designed and  painted by Holly Tourdot. The Angus Cheese House, Transportation Mural and Peterson Music Night Murals were supported by a grant from the La Pointe Center for the Arts and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.  Additional funding  for the Peterson Night Mural was provided by Island Carvers.

Visit Bayfield Wisconsin

Situated at the top of Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Superior, Bayfield Wisconsin has something for everyone. You can stroll the streets of this quaint village and see the Victorian homes or shop in stores that feature beautiful local art  and other gift items as well as traditional souvenirs. Bayfield was once home to many ships and captains operating on the lake. You can see this heritage at the Maritime Museum. One of the most beautiful of the homes, the Rittenhouse Inn, has been turned into a bed and breakfast so you can stay there for a night or two, or just enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner. Many water sports activities await you in Bayfield. Guided k tours and lessons  are available as well as charter and bare boat fishing and sailing boats. While in Bayfield Wisconsin, don’t miss a trip to the apple orchards on the hills above town. Berries of all kinds are grown all summer long, and you can pick your own or buy some in the carton. For a fall visit, plan to attend the annual Apple Festival. For help planning your itinerary, contact the Bayfield Chamber of Commerce. Wisconsin can be your year-round vacation destination. And, of course, no trip to northern Wisconsin is complete without a ferry ride across the lake to Madeline Island. Historic Madeline Island is only minutes away from Bayfield and well worth the trip.
