Kohler is a charming village, just west of Sheboygan, that is home to Kohler Company, world-famous maker of plumbing fixtures. The entire village seems like one large park. Note the street light fixtures as an example.

Plans are possibly in the works to restore service over this bridge as the line was abonded for a short period of time however the line is being reactivated from the west.
