    The Historical Marker Database (HMdb.org) contains notes of a marker on a Winnebago Drive wayside in Taycheedah, Wisconsin:

    Looks like they might've used the same postcard image to create the marker etching! If it's the same one, the marker notes the toll gate was around from 1835 to 10 January 1916.

    I wonder what Mabel's new curtains looked like? Great find!
