Learn about the origins of American Halloween customs at Wade House. We'll play seasonal games of the period, enjoy hot cider in the stagecoach inn, and take a two-mile, open-air, horse-drawn wagon ride. We'll also carve pumpkins and turnips, and listen to classic renditions of scary (but family friendly) stories in the candlelit Herrling Sawmill.

Wade House, an 1860s stagecoach inn built to serve traffic along the plank road that connected Fond du Lac and Sheboygan, tells the story of frontier entrepreneur Sylvanus Wade and his family during the Civil War years. In addition to the inn, the historic site includes the recently reconstructed Herrling sawmill, one of the few working, water-powered sawmills of its kind in the nation. Wade House is also home to the Wesley Jung Carriage Museum, which houses the state's largest collection of antique carriages and working wagons.
