New Diggings is one of Wisconsin's oldest town. The General Store & Inn is the real deal, not a new building made to look old, but an 1844 structure. We also have two churches, a few houses and aound 50 people. And since 1844 the Original General Store & Inn, our place, has always been a tavern among other things. It's a destination that's worth the trip!

Benton, Shullsburg, Scales Mound, Cuba City, Hazel Green Wisconsin, Dubuque Iowa, and East Dubuque Illinois all have great taverns and restaurants with fun people and good times. They are all close by and within ten to twenty minutes worth of rubber on the road. Do not forget about all the other great places between you and The Diggs too. Go out, do things, spend money and enjoy life like today is all we have!

We have been blessed to have Paul Chase as a good friend of ours, and if you remember the 16 foot tall guitar that used to sit in our lot, he made that and has done a fabulous painting of our lovely town. They are oil on canvas and can be purchased for $40.00 for the small one, and $100.00 for the larger one. If you would like to check out his work, you can do so at , or stop in and see ours in person! --
