Wade House Historic Site

Welcome to a horse-powered world!

Visit the Wade House Historic Site to experience what it was like when travelers and horses rested in Greenbush and when life and business in the area bustled as the new town grew and prospered. Come and see our amazing Visitor Center and Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum, which features the state’s largest collection of horse-drawn vehicles.

Then take a horse-drawn ride back in time to learn how your relatives lived before indoor plumbing and electricity as you tour a stately 27-room stagecoach hotel. Center and Carriage Museum open year-round. A visit to the Wade House Historic Site is a fun-filled day for family and friends to walk in the footsteps of their ancestors in a gorgeous outdoor setting amidst the Kettle Moraine.
