Just north of Wisconsin State Highway 29 and a few miles east of Thorp is Historical Marker 537, dedicated to St. Hedwig’s (church) and the Poznan Colony.
St. Hedwig’s is no longer used as a place of worship. It is being converted (or maybe has been by the time you read this) into a music studio. In its heyday, it was the largest church east of the Mississippi.
Inside the base of the bell tower is this plaque.
There is a cemetery just to the north.
The approach to the building used to be quite basic, but now it’s rather elaborate.
Across the road to the east is this monster tower.
