The Gobbler / Helmut Ajango


Imagine the pitch to the investors: It’s going to be a futuristic, state-of-the-art motel with every modern convenience from water beds to 8-tracks. The entire dining area will be covered in deep-pile pink and purple carpet. But wait — here’s the best part. It will look like an abstract sculpture of a giant turkey. We’ll bill it as a romantic getaway — and call it The Gobbler! — via LILEKS (James) :: the Gobbler

A man considered to be Fort Atkinson’s own Frank Lloyd Wright has passed away.

Helmut Mike Ajango, whose numerous creative designs became regionally — and even internationally — known landmarks, died Friday, 15 November. He was 81 years old.

Closer to home, Ajango’s innovative, forward-thinking architectural style was well represented in two Jefferson County restaurants: The Fireside Dinner Theatre in Fort Atkinson and The Gobbler Supper Club and Motel in Johnson Creek — via Daily Union
