Visitors will get to experience the canning process by watching and listening to staff as they follow recipes dating back to 1858. Staff will use raspberries picked on the Wade House grounds to make the jam and jelly and then will seal canning jars with brandy-soaked paper rounds and five layers of tissue paper.

Interpreters will also explain the differences between jams and jellies. They will explain that both are preserves but are very different when it comes to ingredients, recipe, and overall composition.

Chunks of the original fruit are usually visible and tend to make the end result somewhat lumpy.

The same is not true for jellies. In most cases, jellies are made only from juices, which means that they contain no fruit pieces or seeds. They tend to have a smoother, more uniform consistency as a result.

“Jams & Jellies” will take place at the Wade House Historic Site in Greenbush. Visitors will begin the special experience at the new Wade House Visitor Center and Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum, 7965 State 23. Admission is: adults - $12; children (5-17) $6; students and senior citizens (65 and over) $10; famchitect ily (two adults and two or more dependent children 5-17) $33.

The Wade House Historic Site is celebrating the 150th birthday of famed ar-

Frank Lloyd Wright in 2017 with season-long exhibits, lectures, and educational activities focusing on Wright’s life and work in Wisconsin and his relationship with Sheboygan carriage collector and restoration expert Wesley W. Jung.

The next event in the celebration will be a presentation titled “The Frank Lloyd Wright Carriages” by Vicki Nelson Bodoh, past president of the Carriage Association of America and an avid carriage driving enthusiast. Thursday, Aug. 10 from 7 to 8:30 p m. at the Wade House Visitor Ccenter, Bodoh will share the results of her two year-long study of Frank Lloyd Wright’s horse-drawn carriages at Taliesin in Spring Green, and the connection she discovered between the famed architect and Sheboygan carriage collector Wesley W. Jung. Bodoh’s presentation will be preceded by a complimentary reception featuring microbrews and light hors d’ oeuvres, which will begin at 6:30 p m.

Bodoh’s tale begins in 2000 with the rumor that horse-drawn carriages remain at Taliesin, home of Frank Lloyd Wright, in Spring Green, and continues with research done over a period of two years to locate the carriages, find evidence that they were used at Taliesin and driven by Frank Lloyd Wright and discover the connection to Wesley W. Jung of Sheboygan.

In her presentation, through compelling photos and stories, Bodoh will document the mystery of the horse-drawn carriages that remain at Taliesin and how they were used by Wright, his family and the fellowship of apprentices. Bodoh will also highlight the relationship of some of Wright’s carriages to the horse drawn vehicle collection of Sheboygan carriage collector and restorer Wesley W. Jung, which is housed in the Wesley W. Jung Carriage museum at Wade House Historic Site.

The seventh event in our “Frank Lloyd Wright: A Wisconsin Original” monthly speaker series will take place Saturday, Sept. 16 at 1 p.m. and will feature a lecture by Dr. Brandon Ruud, Abert Family Curator of American Art from the Milwaukee Art Museum, titled “George Mann Niedecken.”

Ruud will share the life and work of interior architect George Mann Niedecken, including how Niedecken’s influence played a role in furnishing many of Wright’s best-known Prairie School houses.

The “Frank Lloyd Wright Carriages” presentation will take place at the Wade House Visitor Center, W7965 State 23, Greenbush, halfway between Sheboygan and Fond du Lac. Admission to the “Frank Lloyd Wright: A Wisconsin Original” monthly speaker series.
