Our drive today takes us to Waukesha County where we enjoy an included lunch at the Delafield Brewhaus.
After lunch, we travel to Genesee Depot located in the beautiful Kettle Moraine area to the Ten Chimneys Estate. This National Historic Landmark is more than a great museum. The estate was once owned by the Broadway Legend couple “Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.”
Before our tour we will be divided into smaller groups for a more intimate experience. Our 2 hour docent lead tour of the estate includes both inside and outside areas. Tour includes the 3 story Main House, the rustic Studio, enchanting Cottage, restored gardens, Poolhouse, Greenhouse, and Creamery. There will also be stories of their famous summer house guests such as Katharine Hepburn, George Burns and Charlie Chaplin.
Join us on this inspirational tour and see why it’s known as a hidden jewel in Wisconsin.
