Experience Horse-Drawn Carriages and Historic Hospitality
Explore the horse-powered world that existed before planes, cars, and railroads. At Wade House, the golden era of carriages lives on, with historic structures and a state-of-the-art museum highlighting the wonder of travel.
Just like a 19th-century traveler, you’ll arrive at the site’s namesake 1850s stagecoach hotel built and operated by Sylvanus and Betsy Wade. Bake in the kitchens, relax to the soothing sounds of the piano, and belly up to the bar in the tavern. This amazing example of 19th-century architecture and culture is just one stop on your adventure through time.
Your journey also includes stunning nature trails and stops at the sawmill, blacksmith shop, and more. The state-of-the-art Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum includes interactive exhibits for all ages and is home to Wisconsin’s largest collection of carriages and wagons.
