About Us

Set upon 240 rolling acres within the Kettle Moraine State Forest, the site celebrates the world of plank road stagecoach travel, horse-drawn transportation and mid-19th century settlement. Visitors begin their visit in the site’s NEW Visitor Center and Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum, exploring orientation exhibits and Wisconsin’s largest collection of carriages, wagons and sleighs. Following a horse-drawn wagon ride to the site’s historic core area, visitors will join costumed guides for a tour of the 27-room stagecoach hotel, built in 1850, and see demonstrations in the working blacksmith shop and the water powered sawmill.
