1. Drohman Farm Marker
Inscription. The land surrounding this spot was originally the farm of George and Mary Drohman, pioneer German settlers who came to the U.S. around 1846. From 1851 to 1906 another German-American family, Adolph and Mary Sigglekow and their two sons, tilled this land. This foundation marks the site of their log and half-timber farmhouse. An ancient European technique called wattle-and-daub, in which sticks were woven together and packed with mud, was used as the original insulation. The house was moved to Sauk County in 1989.
