Let's Build Together

The 5597 Apple Court Renovation Project

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Snow is melting, the sun is shining, and a breath of fresh air is upon us here in Greendale! Spring is ready to blossom just like the Apple Court House. The renovation work is coming to a close, and the house is ready for a new beginning. The Historical Society is working on the finishing touches, including furnishings, landscaping, and clean-up. 

What's next? The 5597 Apple Court House was renovated to be a living, breathing historical home. One purpose of the house will be for guests to rent it for short stays via the VRBO vacation rental website. It will indeed be a one-of-a-kind experience to stay in this showplace of Greendale history. Proceeds from stays will go towards the upkeep, utilities, housekeeping, and other expenses to keep this unique piece of Greendale going for generations. Don't fret; we will also have events, tours, and other functions at the house soon.

We need your help! Join us in showering the Apple Court House with housekeeping items. Please consider a donation of new kitchen and bath items for the house. You can purchase items on Target.com through our Gift Registry (click the button below for our registry page) or visit a Target store and search by 'Apple Court House' in their registry computer. Then plan to drop them off items at our no contact drop off on April 30th.

Friday, April 30th, 2021 from 1-3p.m. at

The mission of the Apple Court House Project is to plan, secure funds for, and oversee the
adaptive renovation of the Original Greendale home at 5597 Apple Court. The home will be a showcase
for the vision and planning of Greendale’s founders, the heritage of a Greenbelt community, and recognition of Greendale’s National Historic Landmark designation. Once renovated the home will be open for display, tours, and special use.

Please consider making a donation or volunteering to donate time to help the Greendale Historical Society reach our goal of restoring this Original Original back to its original 1930s splendor.
