About the Location
The original Wade House stagecoach hotel was built and owned by Sylvanus and Betsey Wade, the first European settlers of Greenbush, who purchased several hundred acres in the area, established the village in 1845, and opened the hotel in 1851. The inn was perfectly located in the dense forest of the Wisconsin frontier, halfway between Fond du Lac and Sheboygan, on a popular stagecoach trail. At Wade House, your day will be fun, engaging, enriching, and authentic. Encounter history by exploring sensory-rich spaces, stories, and activities for all.

Wade House is located on 240 acres near the Northern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Many pathways are level but somewhat rugged. Due to the scale used in our historic buildings, access to the Wade House Inn and Herling Sawmill is somewhat limited. Reasonable accommodations can be made for individuals requiring mobility assistance.
