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.
The house is maintained by the W. J. Niederkorn Museum and Art Center (P O Box 87 – Port Washington, WI 53074) and hold affiliates with the Ozaukee County Tourism Council, Wisconsin Historical Society and the Wisconsin Council for Local History.
