    I loved my tour through Ten Chimneys, though I will admit it's not for everyone. I had no idea who Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt were, but their story and the story of the home they built together was...  more »

    They have very knowledgeable people doing the tours and they have lots of great information and stories about the buildings. Well worth the visit.

    We only caught the free displays, but the seeing has a neat small village feel.

    This treasure is hidden away in a rural part of Wisconsin. Local docents provide tours and in the summer, actors and actresses can attend a weeklong workshop with well know celebrities to hone their craft. While visiting stop in to the local bakery or enjoy dinner at one of the few town restaurants.

    A National Historic Landmark, Ten Chimneys is a gem hidden where no one would think to look. Located in Genesee Depot, just south of I-94 and west of Milwaukee, WI, it served as home for Broadway actors Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt and country retreat for a host of Broadway, Hollywood, and international talent. Anyone interested in theatre will love the estate tour. Our exceptional volunteer docent illuminated decades of history at Ten Chimneys on a two-hour walking tour of the estate. The estate is open to the public seasonally, roughly May-November. The visitor center appears accessible to all ages. If you plan to tour the estate, the staff strongly recommends reservations, considerable walking and stair climbing are involved, and it's not a tour for children under 12. In addition to tours and interpretation, Ten Chimneys Foundation hosts a variety of programs target for theatre students and professionals, and others open to the public.
