Wisconsin's "Wonder Spot" To Close
Though the Wonder Spot sees as many as 50,000 visitors a year (at $5 a head), Bill Carney recently sold the roadside attraction to the village of Lake Delton for $300,000. The village wants to build a road through the spot where the Wonder Spot has stood since the 1950s. Though the new road won't run over the Wonder Spot, itself, it'll run darn close, and that's what prompted Carney to sell.
Though I've never been to the Wonder Spot, I can't imagine that the village couldn't figure out a way to incorporate this relic of Americana into its comprehensive plan. Considering the entire region is a tourist's delight, saving this rich piece of culture seems like it should've been a priority.
