Built in 1868, The Driftless Muse was home to miners, some of the first settlers to Mount Carroll.  The house was added onto several times and only know for sure in 1907 because there were newspapers from 1907 in the walls. The house was recently rehabbed 2016.   The owners kept what they could that was original and used a lot of repurposed materials. They are an artist, and a writer who created a space that they feel supports creativity, peace, family and rejuvenation. Like & follow us on Facebook!
