This building was constructed on the home site of General Joseph Bailey Civil War hero and a founder of Kilbourn City (now Wisconsin Dells) in 1856. Bailey became a national Civil War hero in 1864 when Porter's Red River Fleet was stranded in low water. Using raftsmen's techniques learned in this area, Bailey freed the fleet, saving the Union two million dollars and shortening the war by two years.

This property was leased from Jack and Ben Olson by Arnold Borcher Co. in 1978, remodeled in a nautical motif and named Bailey's Landing in his honor. AD 1979
