Welcome~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~    The Judge Eghart House mission is to preserve, illustrate and educate for present and future generations a living example of family life in late-19th century Port Washington, Wisconsin.


The Judge Eghart House invites you to step back in time. The house was built in 1872 by Byron and Clara Teed.  Judge Leopold Eghart purchased the house and land in 1881. With his wife Anna they raised six children here. There are many stories to share, so please come visit us this summer.

School groups, antique-lovers, bus tour groups, and visitors from around the world explore the Eghart House each year. Tours include the hall, parlor, dining room, bedroom, and kitchen of the house, all furnished with antiques donated by Port Washington and area families.

Judge Eghart Annual Meeting

Monday, May 6 at 7 pm

Learn & eat! Watch (and perhaps assist!) our Wade House – affiliated demonstrator prepare a few Victorian dishes. Learn about the different cooking techniques and unique measurements (“use a piece of butter the size of a hen’s egg”) of the time. You’ll get to sample all the demonstrated items. You’ll be surprised by how doable and tasty these old recipes are. Some will be taken from the Eghart House’s “Girl Bachelors Cookbook 1899” which was produced locally.  A short business meeting precedes the presentation.
