    Who was Emma Carlin?

    I googled and only came up with links to the trail that shares her name.

    The original owner of the General Store and founder of Backyard bikes. The rusty old bike that sits outside of the General Store is the bike she was known to ride while forming the trail that is now named after her. All I know is her name was Emma.

    Emma Carlin was a schoolteacher in Lake Mills and Palmyra, who donated the land that encompasses the Emma Carlin trails to the state of Wisconsin. I don't know much beyond that, but you can click through the links here to see if you can find out more:

    If you're really interested, trying giving the state historical society a call.
