We make history fun! Fond du Lac’s one-of-a-kind historic village has been revitalized after roughly $2 million of meticulous restoration, which is a pretty historic act in itself. The village consists of over 30 buildings, a museum and a library, with the stately Galloway Mansion smack dab in the center. Moments away from this jaw-dropping landmark, you’ll find the Greenway Arboretum, scenic parkland, and another very tasty piece of history: a 50’s-style drive-in.
At the southeast curve of Pioneer Road, moments away from sprawling Buttermilk Creek Park.
