Spirits on the Solstice

Thursday, June 20 | 6 – 8 PM

Imagine yourself on the porch of a stately, Greek revival stagecoach inn, savoring a cocktail as the sun settles on the longest day of the year. Better yet, give your imagination a rest and reserve your spot for this hands-on evening of craft cocktail making in the taproom of the Wade House.

Stagecoach Rides this Saturday, May 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Book your ticket for a trip into the past at Wade House Historic Site in our reproduction Concord Stagecoach, handcrafted by Hansen Wheel and Wagon of South Dakota.

Fun Facts about Concord Coaches:

Historically, the coaches produced by Abbot-Downing Company of Concord, NH, were considered the benchmark of a quality constructed coach. The design was so perfect that the body style and suspension of the system of the “Concord” coach was unchanged throughout the stagecoach era and remains a recognized symbol of craftsmanship today.

Such a fun event! Thankful that you offer this experience for our community and thankful for the skilled stagecoach drivers! 🐎

Yep, you get to take a nice half hour ride through the beautiful property that surrounds the Wade House-there is about 240 acres of woodland and meadows to journey through- a very unique experience.

Someday!! I will go for a ride like this!

When will the next one be?

Join us this Saturday, May 25 at 1 p.m. when author Mary Elise Antoine, focusing on the five black women, will explore the history of slavery in the Upper Mississippi River Valley, relying on legal documents, military records, court transcripts, and personal correspondence. Whether through perseverance, self-purchase, or freedom suits—including one suit that was used as precedent in Dred and Harriet Scott’s freedom suits years later—each of these women ultimately secured her freedom, thanks in part to the bonds they forged with one another.

Antoine’s book, Enslaved, Indentured, Free, 1800 to 1850, focuses on a time when the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 made slavery illegal in the territory that would later become Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, and part of Minnesota. However, many Black individuals’ rights were denied by white enslavers who continued to hold them captive in the territory well into the nineteenth century. Enslaved, Indentured, Free shines a light on five extraordinary Black women—Marianne, Mariah, Patsey, Rachel, and Courtney—whose lives intersected in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, during these seminal years.

Mary Elise Antoine is president of the Prairie du Chien Historical Society and former curator at Villa Louis. She is the author of The War of 1812 in Wisconsin and coeditor, with Lucy Murphy, of Frenchtown Chronicles of Prairie du Chien.

This Taproom Talk will take place at the Wade House Visitor Center located at W7965 Hwy. 23 in Greenbush, WI, halfway between Sheboygan and Fond du Lac. Admission for the lecture is $7 per adult and teens; $5 for seniors and children (5 to 12) and free for children under 5 years of age. For more information and to book your tickets, please visit our website at wadehouse.org or call 920-526-3271.
