History of Horse and Buggy Days. by Elmer and Florence Oehlke
In 1960 a group of Weyauwega business men, led by Robert Hofferber decided to put this little town of Weyauwega Populatiion 1300 on the map. Horse and Buggy Days became that name and the town moves back into the 19th century every fall for 2 days. Many of the people living here had ancestors who helped settle the area. Everyone got into the spirit and started looking through old trunks, attics, barns and sheds to see what they could find. What they found plus what neighboring communities added made quite a display. People came for many miles just to see all the old things.
