Mr. Wakely's Winter Feast
February 13, 2021
Robert and Mary Wakely, early central Wisconsin pioneers, were noted for their mid-winter parties held at their hotel located along the Wisconsin River just south of present day Nekoosa. Today the Wakely's home is open as a living history center called Historic Point Basse. The Citizens of Point Basse, volunteers who operate the site, are keeping many of the early traditions alive including a fun filled dinner and dance called Wakely's Winter Feast. The evening will begin with the gathering, from 4 until 4:45 an informal time to enjoy some hot cider and snacks and renew old acquaintances and make new ones. At 5:00 a home cooked pioneer feast featuring domestic and wild game dishes will be served, including dessert. The evening will also include music and dancing. Tickets are $20.00 in advance and $25.00 at the door and are available at Family Natural Foods, Daly Drug and Beavers Variety Store or from any Citizen of Point Basse.
