Toad House

Toad House is a bakery, coffee shop, and gift gallery. The Gift Gallery and Art related events such as children's classes are run by the Rusk Area Arts Alliance. The Enchanted Woods is part of the property and visitors, especially children are encouraged to walk the trails and keep a close eye out for the gnomes, fairies, hobbits and eleven folk who reside there. However, it is important to keep a sharp eye out for the trolls who litter! The land upon which Toad House stands was part of a larger piece of land sold in 1864 by the United States Government to John Murphy. The property was eventually called ‘The New Flambeau Addition’. It went through many owners and divisions until the early 1900’s when the Ellingboe family bought the property. The Ellingboes had a daughter Helen, married to Harold Schiotz, to whom they deeded the property. The Schiotz’s lived in the home until they died. The property remained vacant until May 2010 when Tony and Eileen Ziesler bought the home from the two daughters, Bev and Randi, creating Toad House with extensive redesign and remodeling. But why, might you ask, did they name it Toad House? In 1996, Tony and Eileen sailed in the Apostle Islands. In the marina where their boat was kept, they found a large toad living under a soda machine. He came out at night to eat the insects that collected in the light of the machine, but he was never to be found in the daytime. The experience was the inspiration for the poem, Toads, that later became a beautiful picture book illustrated by a local artist, Janelle Thompson. But what should the new little publishing company be named? Michael Doran suggested Toad House Publishing and 711 Lake Avenue West became Toad House. If you happen to hop over when the toads are in, you will find delicious bakery, baked at the little commercial bakery from traditional recipes. Come on a Friday to enjoy a light lunch with friends that features homemade soup and the various breads You may choose European crepes with whipped cream and fruit, or a delicious quiche full of spinach, asparagus, sweet corn, peppers, or mixed vegetables. German kipfle or brotchen, sweet rolls, and real sourdough breads are frozen soon after baking so you may pick up these specialties at any time. Enjoy meaningful conversations with artists and friends; come for great coffee, come for food, come for beautiful gifts and cards by local artists and authors, come to knit and chat, to take a class, to share with your child or grandchild the joy of creating. Leave with the rewards of meaningful friendship. We invite you to enjoy all that Toad House has to offer. We invite you to come and be part of this ordinary and extraordinary gathering place in our community!

Rusk County Visitors Center & Rail Display

The Rusk County Visitor Center is located in a replica Soo Line train depot structure, and serves as a Visitor Center but also includes a rail display, including a Soo Line Engine, Caboose, Boxcar, and vintage rail cars located adjacent to the facility. Inside display cases include various railroad memorabilia, a telegraph station, and rail related artwork.

Reviewed By Jon Q P

This rail display is almost a shrine to Soo Line buffs, as it features Soo Locomotive #500A, a Restored EMD FP7 that was once in revenue service through Ladysmith, pulling passenger trains...There are also 7-8 additional restored cars & a wooden caboose..

The entire display sits along the ORIGINAL Soo Line mainline tracks from Minneapolis St Paul to Sault Ste Marie, which are still in active service (bow as the Barron Sub), with several trains a day from the sand mines & drying plants farther west about 20-30 miles

The display is also only a 4 block walk fro Ladysmith's other Railroad treasure, "Old Smoky", a restored 1920 Alco 2-8-2 Mikado, which came to Ladysmith on it's last revenue run, under full steam, and is now in static display

O.J. Falge Park

Scenic park in Ladysmith, WI featuring a small lake & wetlands full of birds & wildlife. Boardwalk, Basketball Court, Volleyball Court, Horseshoe Pits, Playground Equipment, Picnic Tables & Benches, Pavilion, Handicap Accessible Fishing Pier

Reviewed By Jon Q P

O J Falge Park is an interesting place, tucked away in a quiet part of town, and surrounded on 3 sides by Corbett Lake a swampy, boggy area that offers respite to waterfowl right in the middle of the community. . The City/County Library occupies a prominent location on the North side of the park, with expansive windows looking down the hill at people enjoying the lake, and the park. There is a Man-Made island in the lake, with a pavilion, and it can be reached by a trail and walking bridge from the main part of the park.

The city is working on plans for a dredging & rehabilitation of part of the lake, and it will continue to be the hidden jewel of Ladysmith
