  • Thank you, Sharon, for this interesting history of Old Appleton. I see a lot of familiar surnames in this account; my dad was born in Old Appleton in the 1920's. We used to hold our family reunions and summer fish fries near the old tavern by the bridge. Although the village currently is far from "progressive," it still retains its charm, and one familiar with the town can't help but long wistfully for the good old days when the Silver Dollar Tavern and the mill were still in business--or at least still standing.
