North Kettles Cruise Professional Review and Guide
"Visiting Old Wade House State Park at Greenbush is like traveling in time to the nineteenth century. The park includes a number of restored buildings from the early 1800s, when Greenbush was an important stop on the plank road between Sheboygan and Fond du Lac. Included are a carriage museum, a blacksmith shop, and the Old Wade House itself, a restored stagecoach inn and halfway house built between 1847 and 1851. In 1860 the railroad by-passed Greenbush by 2 miles, and the once-prosperous village was frozen in time.
The glacier that covered Wisconsin 10,000 years ago left many defining features behind in this area. The deep cutlike depressions, called kettles, are as common as the sharp, tree-covered ridges, the moraines, in this 28,000-acre forest that ranges for 25 miles south from Greenbush. Kettle Moraine Drive is a cyclist's delight as it twists and turns, drops down, and then bobs up through the forest. There are hills, almost constant hills, but few long, strenuous climbs."
