Waupun City Hall

Welcome

On behalf of the Waupun Area Chamber of Commerce, we invite you to swing by, stop in or stay for a while and explore everything Waupun has to offer - from our natural resources and recreational options to places of worship, history and our famous collection of art. Whether you are a lifelong resident or a first-time visitor, we hope you find this guide book informative and beneficial. Natural Resources: The Rock River runs through Waupun and our boardwalk walking trail allows you to follow the river’s path. Looking to bike? Explore the bike trails through town or head east to the Horicon Marsh for biking, walking & auto tours. The Marsh is also great for sight seeing, spotting critters and logging a few unplugged hours in the outdoors.. Recreation: Enjoy one of our parks featuring a variety of athletic and child-friendly activities; or our Aquatic Center, Golf Course, Baseball Complex and Disc Golf Course. Want to camp under the stars? Check out the sites available at the Fond du Lac County Park. Arts: Waupun boasts one of the highest concentrations of public art per capita in the United State, thanks to a remarkable pioneer - Clarene Shaler - and the cultural inheritance he left to Waupun. Enjoy this wonderful collection of outdoor sculptures including the world-renown “End of the Trail” by James Earle Fraser and additional pieces: “Recording Angel”, “Dawn of Day”, The Citadel”, “The Pioneers”, “Doe and Fawn”, and “Who Sows Believes in God”. History: Waupun is also home to one of the first Carnegie libraries in the state and the first Wisconsin State Prison built in 1851. In addition there are several other properties around the city that are listed on the state and national registries of historic places. Local Attractions: A drive through downtown showcases historic buildings used for office and retail shops, including Gysbers Jewelry - a family-run business established in 1874. And don’t forget to visit fourth- and fifth-generation candy makers at Guth’s Candy for gifts, popcorn, chocolates or coffee creations. We have a collection of local restaurants spanning the city and a variety of festivals throughout the year, including the Farmers Market, Truck-n-Show, Celebrate Waupun, Volksfest, Halloween on Main, Small Business Saturday, Concerts in the Park, Wine Walk, Brau Bash and more! We’re excited you’re here! -Waupun Area Chamber of Commerce 2018 Waupun Visitors Guide

OCT Fall Play 12-13 Annual “Drinking Habits 2”

Performed by our very own Waupun Community Players inside Waupun’s historic City Hall Auditorium. The Sisters of Perpetual Sewing miss the excitement of the old days when they were saving convents and reuniting long-lost families. So when they learn that the local orphanage is in peril, they try to put on a play to raise money. Within the craziness, the award winning wine keeps getting switched with the grape juice. The mix-ups multiply in this warm and silly sequel to Drinking Habits. For more information visit www.waupunfinearts.org or find us on Facebook.

City of Sculpture A GALLERY OF OUTDOOR ART Those who visit the majestic End of the Trail statue often find the figure captivating, almost mirage-like in its poignant splendor. This world-famous statue is only one piece of the bronze legacy Clarence Shaler left to his beloved hometown. Born the son of Mackford Prairie farmers, Shaler was an inventive genius, always looking for better ways to do things. Perhaps that’s why he fostered such a love for sculpture, a kind of art that lends itself well to interpretation from a multitude of perspectives. Not only was Shaler instrumental in bringing two major works of American art to Waupun but he also began sculpting his own heritage in bronze at age 70, further expressing a lifelong love of art. One by one, he donated pieces to the city of Waupun and other institutions with which he felt a personal connection. Today, Waupun has one of the highest concentrations of public art per capita in the United States, thanks to one remarkable pioneer and the rich cultural inheritance he left behind.

The Citadel

Who Sows Believes in God

In front of Waupun Heritage Museum on the corner of Madison and Jefferson Streets

Shaler Park on Madison Street The most recognizable of the Waupun sculpture collection, “The End of the Trail”, was first viewed by Clarence Shaler at the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. Clarence Shaler later commissioned James Earle Fraser to cast the sculpture in bronze. The statue was named a registered Wisconsin landmark in 1975, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.

Shaler’s family say he may have been depicting the cataclysmic events taking place in Nazi Germany during World WarII, sculpting the devil to represent the Nazi Party and the downcast woman, the German people.

The 12-foot figure of a pioneer woman was completed a few years before Mr. Shaler’s death. This statue is a monument to the optimism of those who plant all kinds of seeds.

Recording Angel Central part of Forest Mound Cemetery on Madison St.

Lorado Taft completed “Recording Angel” at the request of his friend, Clarence Shaler. The sculpture is placed at the head of Clarence Shaler’s wife, Blanche’s, grave. The detail on this statue is exquisite, from the filaments of the angel’s wings to her detailed toes. Recording Angel is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.

Doe and Fawn

Morning of Life

The Rock Golf Club Entrance

Union Cemetery

Shaler created this sculpture, some say his finest, in memory of his twin sister, Clara, who at age 18, died in the morning of her life. The bronze statue, a life size young girl seated on a large rock, eyes gazing heavenward, stands in the quiet of Union Cemetery in Mackford Prairie, twelve miles northwest of Waupun.

The pair of deer are Shaler’s simple tribute to the pastoral scene at Waupun’s golf course, one of his favorite places. All kinds of wildlife roamed the grounds then as they do today.

The Pioneers

Dawn of Day

Wilcox Park, corner of Watertown and Lincoln Streets Shaler created this young family out of respect for the optimism that helped his parents and other settlers to forge ahead in the untamed wilderness of America. The Pioneers is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.

City Hall, corner of Main and Forest Streets

Dawn of Day was Shaler’s first heroic bronze statue, sculpted using several different models to achieve the maiden’s perfection. “Like this Indian maiden who is casting off the old garments... who will ever look forward to the dawn of a day of greater prosperity and happiness,” Shaler said in his dedication speech. 2018 Waupun Visitors Guide
