Visiting Wade House takes you on a journey through Wisconsin’s past with tours of the Wade House Inn, as well as a blacksmith shop, sawmill, and the Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum. Wade House is named for the stagecoach inn built by the first European settlers of the town, Sylvanus and Betsey Wade.
The inn, built between 1847 and 1851, was constructed conveniently between the cities of Fond du Lac and Sheboygan, along a well-used stagecoach trail. This made the 27-room Greek Revival inn a popular resting point for weary travelers.
You’ll explore the inn and grounds, taste food from the kitchens, belly up to the bar in the taproom, play period games, meet friendly farm animals, see sparks fly from the anvil, smell fresh sawdust, and enjoy interactive exhibits for all ages!
