The Grotto of Dickeyville is a shrine built out of artifacts, religious relics, shells, broken porcelain, and general stuff. The whole thing was built by one priest from 1920 to 1930. That’s right, it took this guy ten years to build his homage to Christianity that all can come and enjoy at any time, and it appears that this place is well-visited. Wisconsin has a huge Catholic population who all offer support and donations to keep The Grotto in good repair. The Grotto gets 40,000 to 60,000 visitors every year according to the Grotto Wikipedia page. . .most wonderful that folks can come visit, contribute funds, and feel blessed by doing so. . .mmmm, aaaahh!
