    The Wausau Club is located at 309 McClellan St Wausau, WI. In 1865, Rufas P. Manson built a large home on the property to accommodate his family of 12. In 1897, Mr. and Mrs. Manson died and the house stood vacant until 1900 at which time it was purchased by private parties and split into two separate homes re-located to 509 and 515 Adams Street. In 1901 the Wausau Club was formed. The club moved a Colonial style home from Wausau’s east side to the McClellan Street location to serve as their clubhouse. In 1912, the Wausau Club was expanded to include a new kitchen and a café (the converted billiard room). In 1922, a 16 room dormitory was added to the west side to house visiting doctors, nurses and club members. The club was enlarged and redecorated. The refurbishment and addition cost $140,000.00. In the lower level of the club was a full sized bowling alley. During the prohibition era (1920-1933), a tunnel connected the club to the Wausau Pilot (presently the Shepherd and Schaller building) which allowed the members to move alcohol undetected to and from the premises. The tunnel has long since been sealed. Due to declining membership the Wausau Club closed its doors in December of 2004. Stories have circulated of a ghost of a woman named Martha who hanged herself in the North Room of the club. Taken from
