Enjoy a delicious hearth-cooked meal, prepared with your own hands, in the historic Wade House stagecoach hotel.
At this event, guests prepare 19th-century dishes on a wood-burning stove and over an open-hearth fire just as Mrs. Wade did more than 150 years ago. This event culminates in a wonderful sit-down meal in the lovely Wade House dining room.
Private Hearthside Dinners for groups of 10 to 20 may also be arranged. For more information and reservations call (920) 526-3271. Advanced reservations required. $55 per person.
Wade House Historic Site, W7965 State Hwy 23
Wade House, an 1850s 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.
Reasonable accommodations will be made for individuals requiring wheelchairs for mobility. Call ahead to make arrangements.
