The Homestead was featured in the front page story of the July 10, 2003 issue of the Hales Corners Village Hub.  Read the article.

The Homestead
The property includes an 1870s German farmhouse and adjacent land which was in the ownership of Hans Stahl and his descendants, the Conrads, from 1869 to 1986. The 2.5 acre site is a small portion of the original Stahl property.  MORE  

In 2006 the Stahl-Conrad Homestead was designated a local historic landmark by the Village of Hales Corners.

Janesville Plank Road
The homestead land itself has great historical significance.  It is located on the former Janesville Plank Road, a route taken by early settlers as they sought fertile land southwest of Milwaukee.  The property represents what this area once was: small, quiet, agricultural.  

We need your help!
We welcome monetary contributions, gifts of goods and services, and/or your help as a volunteer!  We also appreciate donations of items relating to settlement of this area, 19th and early 20th century farming, the Stahl and Conrad families, businesses operated by the Conrads, etc.  Please call 414-858-9195 for more information about contributions and donations.
