Greendale Chimney Tours

View Website Favorite 5680 Broad Street - Greendale, WI 53129
Information: 414-562-6666

As you tour Greendale's "original" homes, built during the 1930’s Roosevelt Administration’s New Deal, gaze up at the stucco chimneys to discover a feature that FDR’s city planners would not have imagined – the folk art of Al Emmons and family.

A knowledgeable guide will share Greendale’s unique history. Over 200 of Emmons’ sculptures now dot Greendale’s downtown chimneys, and the variety is as diverse as the streets and homeowners themselves. Apricots hang on Apricot Court chimneys, azaleas bloom on Azalea Court chimneys, berries ripen on Berry Court, and naturally, Bucky Badger stands sentinel on Badger Court. Other sculptures reflect the homeowners on a more personal level. 

Guided bus tours and full day packages available. Greendale is a beautiful place to spend the day!
