The Wesley Jung Carriage Museum is located on the grounds of the Wade House historic site in Greenbush. It houses a colorful array of vintage wagons and carriages of almost every design and purpose: fire wagons, a circus calliope, delivery wagons, hearses, sleighs, children's wagons and more. Wesley Jung was the grandson of a German carriage maker who had immigrated to Wisconsin. The younger Jung collected vintage carriages as a way of preserving a disappearing mode of transportation. Visitors to the museum get a wonderful sense of the variety of these vehicles once so common on American streets. Read more about the Wesley Jung Carriage Museum in our feature story about Wade House.
