1. Duplicate Marker?
According to the Wisconsin Historical Society list of its historical markers (http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/hp/markers/markerslist.pdf), there is a duplicate marker at "Yahara River Bridge, West Main St." However, I was not able to locate it on May 1, 2010. The duplicate marker may have been displaced by construction on the bridge in recent years.
