Greendale's historic district, a neighborhood that dates back to the 1930s, has been designated a national historic landmark by the U.S. Department of Interior.
Greendale was one of three government-sponsored "greenbelt" communities built during the Great Depression.
"The village represents a pivotal point in the evolution of the American suburb - when the talents and ideas of the nation's foremost designers, social theorists and economists coalesced to demonstrate a new strategy for decentralized community development," a statement from the department said Wednesday.
