HAMILT ON        a,       Ca               ILL
After crossing Cedar Creek at Hamilton on -he or!gin4 Green Bay Road,
there is a great stone building. An old sign says that it is the Cedar
Creek distillery, but it ha. not been used for that for may years.
Before it was a distillery, it was a grain mill. The mil was built in
1853. Across the road there is a stretch of well kept lawn. It is part of
a privately owned picnic park on which some old stone buildings still stnd.
What was once the Hamilton hotel is there, and othe , old buildings make you
think of a long forgotten past. Heand forged strip hinges are still to be
seen on some of the doors. These deserted buildings were once part of a
thriving town caled Hamilton. It was built before there were any railads
in this part of the country. When a railroad did ece through in the town
of Cedarburg, Hamilton became a deserted village.
A mill pond behind the old buildings is picturesque and peaceful.
