July, 2013 - You may notice a small archaeological dig site (orange fence) right next to the trail that runs along County Road JR near Green Bay Road. They are working on the site where a cabin may have existed in the 1800s, this is a mystery site because they don't know who lived in the cabin, only that there are signs that a small cabin may have existed there. This site is near that of a cabin built in 1835 by Jacob Montgomery, a hunter/trapper that built the cabin with his two sons. The Montgomery site could be the first homestead in Kenosha County, and was the subject of a previous dig site (I think that too is fenced off with orange fencing, just west of the current dig site).
