The latest destination on my Virtual Hike was Rome, Wisconsin. This is another special spot in my family history as it is where my 4th Great Grandfather Orsamus Braman migrated to from New York.
The segment started at Turkey River Mounds State Preserve in Iowa which is on the Mississippi River. Much of the Virtual Hike route was through the back roads of Wisconsin. Of course, this view is from harvest time and at the time I was virtually hiking through the fields would have been covered with snow.
The house was added on to, but the original part is still standing. I was able to go inside it when I visited there many years ago.
Here is a better view of the structure. I took this picture when I visited. The log part of the structure was built by Orsamus Braman. There is another picture of the small barn in my post A Visit to Rome.
The next destination on the Virtual Hike is to the south and has another family connection. Check back to see where I end up 🙂
Hopefully now that the rainy season is over I will make better progress on my Virtual Hike. I really need to get more exercise.
