Around the Corner with John McGivern - Lake Mills
They call it Legendary Lake Mills. But as we explored, we uncovered facts, not legends. John Gurda warned us that some believe that in the bottom of Rock Lake there are ancient pyramids. Others believe they are rock formations caused by geological shifts. Hence our first Fact: Rock Lake has either pyramids or rock formations, and if you want to debate it, we're not getting in the middle of it! Fact: Tyranena Brewing Company is the place to meet. Fact: Water House Foods and Doyle's Dogs personify the Lake Mills spirit! (Oh, and John loves to eat. That's also a fact.) Fact: Old Churches without active congregations in Lake Mills are recycled and reused, and John really wants to live in an old church. Fact: Commons Park is really a town square shaped like a triangle, and it's as charming as can be. Fact: Lake Mills will always be legendary to us!
