A Word From The Owner

“My inspiration for our student tours was Mrs. Appleby, my 5th grade teacher in Menomonee Falls. She would take us on walking tours and include stops for lunch along the way. Many years later, I find myself in the unique position where I can offer the same experience to our community.”
