Deer House at Wade Park Zoo

In 1884, the deer at the Wade Park Zoo moved into what became known as the Deer House. Remarkably charming, the Victorian-style structure has been the subject of many sketches through the years. It originally sat where the Botanical Garden is. Some descriptions list the building as the tool shed left over from the Wade estate. The building was later moved along with the zoo to the new Brookside location.
