A Three-County Town (and Greetings from Chilton)

Appleton lies across three countries: Outagamie, Winnebago, and Calumet. I live in Calumet County, with its seat in Chilton on the other side of Lake Winnebago. A calumet, of course, is the ceremonial smoking pipe used by some Native American tribes. As a reminder, here's a photograph I took recently while in Chilton showing the calumet. It's one of my favorite signs on the side of any brick building. (Click to enlarge.)
