Thanks again CameraBuff and Avi. The house in the hill thing was very neat. Not shown in the frame, the road that went by this place was right at the front door, I was standing in the middle of it. Not much room between the entrance to the regular house and the milk house, a couple setps across the road. Also, you can see a hole in the rock above the window, which must have been a stovepipe hole at one time, and if you follow the peak of the roof back into the hill, you can see a brick chimney sticking up out of the forest debris back there. A very interesting place. Wish I had been able to look into it. :)

Thanks Bill. And you hit on why they made Milk Houses. Some would call them Spring Houses, cause they were generally built around springs. They would dig out a spring, to make it bigger and get down to where it is underground. Then build a house around it that had thick walls, cause spring water is always cold, sometimes very cold. This running cold water, over time, would cool down the inside of the "Milk House" and keep it cooler so the milk would not spoil in the summer heat. If you had a good spring, you could build a bigger spring house and keep more stuff cooler and make cheeze and butter. It also keeps it warmer in winter, so it won't freeze. These things are found all over Wisconsin. :)
