The chapel will be closed on Saturday, June 24 due to the usual personnel being unavailable that day. We have confirmed that they will have open hours on the other days, with a chapel guide scheduled (though there is just one chapel guide each day, so if there is an emergency or sickness, the chapel may have to close).

Saturday 6/24: Closed | Sunday 6/25: Noon-4

Kettle Moraine Forest
Stretching from Whitewater Lake in Walworth County to Elkhart Lake in Sheboygan County, the Kettle Moraine was created more than 10,000 years ago when two glacial sheets collided, creating friction and land buckling. The area is dotted with kettle lakes, wetlands and valleys formed when pockets of ice melted, as well as high hills, moraines and kames formed by piles of sediment that were deposited when the glaciers retreated. There are several regions of the Kettle Moraine that are protected by the Wisconsin DNR as state forests. Take a leisurely drive along the 115-mile Kettle Moraine Scenic Route, bike the 6.5-mile crushed limestone Lake-to-Lake Bike Trail connecting Mauthe and Long Lake Recreation Areas, hike to the top of an observation tower (there are three located in this region), or canoe along crystal clear lakes. There is a varied landscape just waiting to be explored.
The Grohmann Museum is home to the Man at Work collection, which comprises more than 1,400 paintings and sculptures dating from 1580 to the present. They reflect a variety of artistic styles and subjects that document the evolution of organized work: from farming and mining to trades such as glassblowing and seaweed gathering. The museum building is as unique as the collection housed within. Once an automobile dealership, and then the Federal Reserve Bank, the building was renovated to become the Grohmann Museum. The steel and glass-domed entrance welcomes visitors to three floors of galleries where a core collection is displayed as well as themed exhibitions. The museum also has a spectacular rooftop sculpture garden.
