Brimming with small-town charm, Greendale’s village center, complete with a historic downtown and prominent green space, is listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places. The village was originally built in 1936, as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal, using the “garden city” model that created housing within walking distance of gardens, employment, shopping and a town center. The project left a downtown lined by more than 2 dozen shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, along with the Reiman Visitor Center. More than 40,000 flowers are planted along downtown streets during Springtime and historic tours are regularly offered. During Christmastime, more than 100,000 lights adorn downtown in celebration.
