I am researching the history of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant site in Sauk County, WI Town of Sumpter. A homesite was purchased by Frederick Pabst in 1845 at the foot of the Baraboo Bluffs. A public house was opened here in the form of an inn and tavern providing rest and entertainment for travelers. Many dances were held here as well. Local legend claims this is the same Pabst that ran Pabst Brewery in Milwaukee. During this time, Milwaukee was the point of entry for many europeans. The farmers here hauled their wheat to Milwaukee to sell by oxen once a year and to buy provisions. A count Harzasky from Germany settled this area in 1941. These are the only connection to Milwaukee or German immigrants we would likely have. Would you know if Frederick Pabst owned land, home and woodlot in the town of Kingston(at that time) in Sauk County and operated a tavern?
