97 – Wisconsin Death Trip – Black River Falls, WI


ODDTOBER has drawn to an end and the weather is turning colder. There’s a distinct chill in the air and the darkness of night comes earlier and earlier. So, settle in with Brett and Amy as they tell the tale of the horrors of Wisconsin in the late 19th century.

In 1973, Michael Lesy published the now cult classic, Wisconsin Death Trip. In the last decade of the 19th century, life in Black River Falls was filled with madness, suicide, murder, disease and child mortality. The horrors perpetrated by the citizens of Jackson County are depicted in stark reality in the photographs taken between 1890 and 1910 by a local photographer, with extracts from the local newspaper, the Badger State Banner, and from the records of the local mental asylum.

All this murder and madness can work up an appetite so we’ll stop by Re-Pete’s Saloon and Grill for some tasty treats. We’ll tell you all about the famous Re-Pete Offender and how you can win your very own Re-Pete t-shirt.

If you’re ready to walk off that giant lunch, we’ll take a trip to the Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center. Learn all about the annual Wisconsin Cranberry Festival as you tour the interactive cranberry museum. Stop by the vintage ice cream parlor for a variety of cranberry flavored ice creams and visit their gift shop for some fantastic cranberry treats.
