Here’s an entire view of our building, property, and the Fox River shot by our friend Tim Geenen in June 2015. That same month, our friend Tara Pohlkotte wrote a stunning article describing her time on the property. She writes, “I feel as if I’ve stumbled into the greatest of Appleton’s secrets, and in some ways I have.” You can read the full article here!

“As defined by Webster, the word refuge means ‘a condition of being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger or trouble.’ That is exactly what has been created here.”
