Gotham Wisconsin....But I didn't see Batman anywhere! But there was a small tavern named The Bat Cave. I didn't go inside..
The name Gotham came from Captain M.W. Gotham (1842-1902), the friend of one of the local store owners. Gotham died with his sons, Lucius and Myron, during a violent storm in the Great Lakes in 1902.
