Around the Corner with John McGivern - #111 -- Greendale

July 19, 2012

[Original Airdate: April 5, 2012] John McGivern explores one of only three "Greenbelt" communities in the United States—Greendale! John Gurda certainly knows tons about this planned community built by the FDR Administration in 1936, but it's John McGivern who explores Greendale today and discovers its fantastic character. John learns why sections of Greendale are so defined, and it doesn't take him long to hear the defining sound of downtown Greendale, where barbershop quartets are alive and well. John meets a barber who's been in the community for 40 years, and visits the Taste of Home Test Kitchen at the Greendale Visitor Center. He tours the local bakery, malt shop and the Shoppe Around the Corner. John also visits a lime farm, where they don't grow limes, and becomes a weed-out-warrior while discovering this true Wisconsin Original! (11 of 13) Episode #111
