Turn back the clock and imagine that the road in front of the home is made from planks. Appropriately called Plank Road, it ran from Manitowoc toward Green Bay, and was one of the last private toll roads in Manitowoc County. A toll gate and house were situated in front of the property. Those passing by on foot paid a toll of 5 cents and horse drawn-wagons paid 10 cents. Polish immigrant Anton Chrapikowski purchased the farm in 1884 and three years later, bought the plank road. He ran the toll road until it became public in 1899. The sophisticated home, built shortly after, became commonly known as the Old Plank Road Toll House. Its history lives on with opening of the Toll House Bed & Breakfast.
