In the bsummer a Farmer’s Market takes place Mondays from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. And then on Fridays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. 





Sanborn Train Depot

It was the Milwaukee Railroad that gave Sanborn its original identity as a prosperous place to live and work.  While in

Sanborn, head over to the park to look at the caboose and take a few pictures.  



The mural on the corner of Main and W. 3rd Street is also worth checking out while in town.
