A Wade House Christmas
Saturday, December 04, 2010 - Sunday, December 05, 2010 10 am-4 pm
Experience the beauty and simplicity of a mid-19th-century celebration of Christmas by the earliest settlers of Greenbush. Yankee and German traditions of the season, hands-on activities for young and old, stories and horse-drawn wagon rides will forge memorable experiences while offering contrasts to our celebration of Christmas today.
Adults $11; children (5-17) $5.50; students and senior citizens (65 and over) $9.25; family (two adults and two or more dependent children 5-17) $30. Horse-drawn transportation on the site included in ticket cost.
Venue: Wade House
Wade House, an 1860s stagecoach inn built to serve traffic along the plank road that connected Fond du Lac and Sheboygan, tells the story of frontier entrepreneur Sylvanus Wade and his family during the Civil War years. In addition to the inn, the historic site includes the recently reconstructed Herrling sawmill, one of the few working, water-powered sawmills of its kind in the nation. Wade House is also home to the Wesley Jung Carriage Museum, which houses the state's largest collection of antique carriages and working wagons.
