Travel Back In Time

You can almost hear the clip-clop of horse hooves on the old plank road as you explore the era of stagecoach travel! Wade House Historic Site offers a glimpse back to a horse-powered world. Visit the site to experience what it was like when travelers and horses rested in Greenbush for a time and when life and business in the area bustled as the new town grew and prospered.
