Asa Mosley Clark, son of Pewaukee’s first settler, built this house in 1844 to provide food and shelter for travelers & their horses. Located along the Watertown Plank Rd. the inn was a favorite stopping place for people traveling between Milwaukee & points west. Food & lodging cost 25¢ per night, including breakfast. The house was occupied by Clark family descendents until 1992, when it was sold to the Pewaukee Area Historical Society. Volunteers restored the house & grounds, creating this museum to preserve the history of the Pewaukee area.
The marker is located on the grounds of the Clark House Museum on eastbound East Wisconsin Avenue, east of its intersection with Prospect Avenue / Meadowbrook Road, at 206 East Wisconsin Avenue, Pewaukee, Wisconsin 53072.
