Repurposed Tobacco Warehouses

Two historic Tobacco Warehouses have been repurposed in Viroqua, Wisconsin. The former Northern Wisconsin Co-Op Tobacco Pool for Leaf Tobacco building has been repurposed into a private residence, which offers additional office space and a stylish Airbnb place.

The space is decorated in a stylish retro theme, with carefree artwork decorating the walls and thoughtful touches in every nook and cranny.

Behind this stylish repurposed warehouse sits a second historic Tobacco warehouse that has been repurposed into a bookstore.

The bookstore is aptly named Driftless Books & Music.

It is truly a place where time seems to stand still. A maze of bookcases offers a magically pathway to explore historical classics and discover new stories behind worn book covers.

As you wind your way from room to room, there are surprises around every corner.

After a fulfilling day of bookstore exploration, make your way down the street to Kickapoo Coffee shop for a splendid cup of hot chocolate and a delicious muffin.

    1. The original plan was to spend one week in each state, but the college was only able to approve a single semester sabbatical rather than a full year, so we are averaging 2 to 6 days per state. Trying to stay away from the typical tourist areas in favor of hidden gems.
