Wade House

An 1850s stagecoach inn built alongside a plank road in Greenbush to serve carriage and wagon traffic. The site includes the reconstructed Herrling sawmill, one of a rare few working water-powered mills of its kind in North America. The Wesley Jung Carriage Museum houses Wisconsin's largest collection of hand-and horse-drawn carriages.
