Welcome to Chilton, Wisconsin!


There are signs with arrows in Chilton for “Uptown” and “Downtown.” Uptown has little bakeries and businesses. Downtown has feed mills, feed mills, mill bars and small factories. This was late Saturday afternoon and the only person visible downtown was squatted on the stoop of a rundown hotel, giving full and considered attention to the glowing end of her cigarette.

She was all the verses of a bad country song: “Lord, Don’t let me Wake Up Sober in Chilton.”

Or maybe that’s just my own heartfelt prayer.

At any rate, some shots of a feed mill on its way down.
