The Wades were the first permanent settlers of Greenbush in 1844 when Wisconsin was still frontier territory and the forests were as dense as you can imagine. They were hoping to develop a village, choosing a specific location halfway between Sheboygan and Fond du Lac along a well-used stagecoach trail. When Wisconsin became a state in 1848, Greenbush was a booming village and the Wades’ “Half Way House” was a regular stop for stagecoach lines. Today, your guests can visit a nationally-landmarked stagecoach inn on the grounds of the Wade House, as well as the carriage museum, a replica of an 1860s water-powered sawmill, and experience horse-drawn wagon rides.

A Dream Come True!
We had our wedding at the Wade House Carriage Pavilion on October 6th. The venue is beautiful - especially with the leaves beginning to change. More than that - the event coordinator, Stephanie, was a dream to work with!! She was extremely accommodating to our needs, amazing at communication, and was always in a great mood and ready to help in any way possible. AND....a horse drawn carriage brought me and my parents to the ceremony before walking me down the aisle...it was like a fairy tale! I would recommend this location to any couple who is looking for a unique and beautiful venue to make their dream wedding a reality.Sent on 10/18/2018

Beautiful places to be married, and Stephanie is so helpful with the planning! Our daughter was married there last weekend and it was like a fairy tale! She was married outside in the Meadows, and came in on an historic horse drawn carriage...surprised all the guests. Excellent service, great buildings to get married in (WITH A/C! great for summer weddings and heavy dresses)....and such a flexible, caring staff. Highly recommended!!!Sent on 09/04/2018

After looking at only one other venue, we fell IN LOVE with the Wade House!!! They are a hidden gem that not many people know about yet. As a couple that loves all things outdoors, we wanted something that wasn’t a tacky barn wedding. They had two locations on the historic grounds to choose from. We fell in love with the stone and old wood buildings on The Lawns, yet we had access to the whole historic site for pictures. If you’d rather opt for something indoors, they also have two venues to choose from. Stephanie, the event coordinator was amazing to work with! She knows what she’s doing and she made everything run perfectly on our special day. Our day was dreamy.Sent on 06/18/2018
