The Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad is a dinner train that has been offering a variety of sight-seeing excursions in the Spooner area for over 17 years. Our trip will include a 2-1/2 hour ride during the peak of the fall foliage. We will dine on Chicken Cordon Bleu in an elegant, mahogany-lined rail car (dating back to the early 1900s). Every guest is seated near a window so you can take in the beauty of northern Wisconsin at one of the most colorful times of the year.
The Museum of Woodcarving, as featured in National Geographic, displays the world’s largest collection of wood carvings as created by Joseph T. Barta. In Spooner, Wisconsin, this one man alone has created over one hundred life size figures, as well as over four hundred miniature carvings! “The Last Supper” is one of Barta’s most famous creations, which took him over four years to complete. Ponderosa, sugar pines, oak, poplar, and basswood are just some of the many types of woods used to create these masterpieces. Professional woodcarvers worldwide travel to see this amazing collection.
