Around the Corner with John McGivern | Program | Delafield (#806)

(pleasant music) – I’m in Waukesha
County on the corner of Genesee and Milwaukee. This is Delafield! (upbeat music) We’re in downtown Delafield. We’re in front of the Hawks Inn and the Delafield
History Center, which I think is great. Finally after all these years, John we’re in front
of a history center. – We finally did it
after all these years. – I love that. It’s good. Let’s talk about Delafield. How did this place get started? – It began, John, with
a road and a river back in 1838 which is 10 years before Wisconsin became a state. A territorial road came
through right here, and between Milwaukee
and Madison, and this was a very
convenient stopping point for stagecoaches. So at least three hotels
went up including this one, built by Nelson Hawks
built back in 1846. Very early. That’s the road. The river was the
Bark which flows out of Lake Nagawicka just
a little bit east of us, and that was dammed back in 1844 to drive a sawmill so people had another reason to settle here. One of the early
owners was a guy named Charles Delafield, so the
town was named for him. And he and nearly
all his neighbors were Yankee Protestants
from back East. – So did they build
a lot of churches? – Just a few. (laughing) One of the first and one
of the prettiest still was Saint John Chrysostom
built back in 1853 and still active. The parish school
became, in time, Saint John’s Military
Academy right next door. So today it’s Saint John’s
Northwestern Military Academy. Its got a 110 acre campus. It really dominates the
north side of Delafield. Just up the road, Lake Nashotah,
another Episcopalian group, began something called
Nashotah House back in 1842, and that became a nationally
important seminary for training Episcopal priests in the high church tradition,
and they still do it. – [John] So it sounds like
they had a lot going on? – They did, John,
but it was mainly a quiet, farm town until 1907, when the interurban
railroad came through from Milwaukee right here, right in front of Hawks Inn. And that brought
crowds of people out to Waukesha County
and Lake Country. You got Nagawicka,
Nashotah, the Nemahbins, and some came to
lakeside resorts, others to their own cottages. – [John] Are they
still coming out? – [John G] They are, but
more and more of them have been staying,
and for a long time. You have Highway 30, in the
1920’s kind of replaced, the old early roads. So people came out in
two lane black top. Then Interstate 94 opened
in the early 1960’s and that made it really easy
to commute back to town. So Delafield
incorporates back in 1959 with 2000 people. The population doubles in 20
years and it’s still growing. – [John] And what did
that do to downtown? – It created a new one. Right where 94
crosses Highway 83 and left the old one
here to kind of languish, and that changed
when Robert Lang moved his very successful
greeting card company here, and attracted other businesses. So he began to buy
downtown buildings back in 1988 and
replaced a lot of them with red brick colonials. Look like something
out of Williamsburg. – [John] They do. – So some old landmarks like
this one were preserved, but they were
surrounded by buildings that were designed to
look a century older. So here you have
Hawks Inn, a hotel, built back in 1846,
and right behind it is Lang’s Delafield
Hotel built in 2006 designed to look colonial. – [John] That’s really funny. – [John G] So it created
some controversy, but Bob Lang gave downtown
Delafield an identity. And these businesses are giving downtown Delafield customers. – [John] Population? – [John G] About 7200. – [John] And let’s
call it location? – [John G] Location.
(chuckling) Delafield is about 30 miles
west of Milwaukee, and the city covers
around 10 square miles between I 94 and Highway 16, pretty much surrounding
Lake Nagawicka. – It’s a beautiful area. – It really is. – People love this town. – They do. – Are you biking here? – Yeah. The Interurban now is
the Lake Country Bike Trail. – That’s perfect. – It really is. – Were you on it or
are you going on it? – [John G] I’ve been. – [John] You’ve been.
Good. Thanks John. – [John G] See you John. – There’s two
Delafield’s in my mind. It’s downtown Delafield with
all those cute buildings, and this Delafield. Right off the
highway, 94 and 83. Where in this Delafield
there is everything. Delafield. (upbeat music) – When it starts out
the wire is round, it ends up looking
like a trapezoid. So it’s flattening
the wire and making it so that you can shape it
to the determined size that we want. We produce about
100 million of these snap rings a year right here for the automotive industry
for all the drive shafts. General Motors, Ford,
Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, Nissan and all the after
market as well. – [John] And it’s
a family business? – [John B] My business
is a family business. My dad started as a
distributor of snap rings. We go through about 3/4 of a million pounds
of wire a year. And then I kindda
went off on my own and did some
manufacturing and…, So I designed a
lot of this stuff. I designed these racks,
and then that took off. It’s a totally
different world in here. And it allowed me the
opportunity to branch out and do what I wanted
which was make some candy. – It wasn’t the
generation before you, it was the generation
before them that introduced you to these? So it was always grandma, right? – Exactly. – It was Aunt Agnes
who had these. – Absolutely. – It was like I need em. – I need em. That’s
exactly right. Yeah I remember very
vividly growing up and always had
the candy raisins. – [John] Do you have any idea
how it became candy raisins? – [John B] The only
thing I can think of is the little wrinkle
on the top of it. – [John] How long was
it between the time they stopped making it to
the time you brought it back? – [John B] They closed
the factory fall of ’08 and then I brought
it back in 2014. So you’re talking six
years ish. It was a lot– – [John] People like I missed it – [John B] Oh my god. I
kind of just went after it and said I gotta bring it back. – [John] In this building
which we’re talking about those rings
and the candy here. How many people
are here everyday? – [John B] About 30 people.
00:06:02,995 –>00:06:02,829
– 30 people? You’re my trainer okay? – Okay. – Good. – [John B] It’s a
different deal for sure. You’d never expect to see rings and candy made in
the same building. – [John] No. – [John B] Isn’t that funny? – [John] Yeah. – [John B] Do you get
paid by the candy raisin or by the hour? – How did you show
up in Delafield? When was that? – In 1987, ’88 because I had
originally started a business. I was in the calendar business. I had offices over in Highway 83 and they were building
a new gas station, and I just saw the
advance of urban sprawl. I like small towns. I just wanted to
rebuild the downtown. And then it just started
to evolve from here. Then when the recession came, then I started to
sell everything. These 19 buildings. I’ve
sold every single one. This was the first
one right here which is still my office. And this year I started– Here’s where I started. the calendar company again. – [John] Did you? – [Bob] Yeah. And
there’s where– – [John] And there you are. – [Bob] There we are now. And I’ve been working on
designing the calendar. I wrote that novel
that I showed you too, and most importantly
my Lincoln collection. – [John] We should
talk about that. It’s a Lincoln
collection of what? – [Bob] From what we know
it is the largest collection of Abraham Lincoln. It’s painted in
his cabinet room. – [John] Period paintings. – [Bob] Yeah there’s
about 15 of them. – [Bob] The significance
of the collection, and the four days
within the collection changed America
forever. The four days. – [Bob] And the first one is
the Emancipation Proclamation. The second day within
this collection is the Battle at Gettysburg. And then you have March 9th, the day that Abraham
Lincoln made General Grant the Commander of the
Army of the Potomac. And then the fourth day is
a day when Lee surrendered. – And it’s right
here in Delafield. I love that fact that
this could be a place, like people could come see this. – [Bob] My original
goal 20 years ago was to build his
house in Springfield but build it here. That’s my concept of
the Lincoln Museum. Ideas and visions are
an evolving process. – [John] Sure. – [Amy] Believe it or not this building is
actually not that old. It was built in 07 by Bob Lang. – [John] And you couldn’t
get a better location? – [Amy] Yes. I’m on
the corner in the heart of downtown Delafield. – [John] It’s a beautiful place. – [Amy] Thank you. – [John] Let’s talk
about what’s in here. Is it all about clothes? – We have women’s fashion,
jewelry, accessories, gifts and home goods. A number of the
lines that I carry are actually locally
made in Wisconsin. Milwaukee Candle Company,
they’re all soy candles and hand poured. They’re inspired by Milwaukee
which is kind of fun. – [John] So this is Bradford
Beach (On a Good day). – Mmhmm. Yep. Yep. – That’s it. It
smells like summer. – Nice and fresh. – That’s what that smells like. Why do you think it’s important to maintain a
relationship with local? – [Amy] Well this was
a big dream of mine and now I have the
opportunity to give back to other people who are
trying to chase their dreams. – [John] That’s so good.
Who’s your customer? Who shows up? A lot of regulars? – [Amy] A lot of regulars. Yes. We do have a lot of travelers. People come in from
Chicago as well, but my customer she is typically probably an empty nester. She likes to go shopping
with her girlfriends and kind of explore
the town on weekends. – [John] And they love
to come, don’t they? – [Amy] They do.
Yes. See what’s new. They always like to
find a new treasure whenever they come here. – We’re just moment
from downtown Delafield in a place called
Cushing Memorial Park. It’s an 8.8 acre
park with open spaces and walking and hiking trails and a Civil war memorial. What a beautiful old fieldstone
building built in 1907. It was built as a fish hatchery. It’s no longer that. Now you know what it is? It’s an event space. So you won’t find fish. You may find people
dancing in there. It’s a landmark
here in Delafield. Everyone in town calls
this the little red church on the hill. It’s Saint John Chrysostom. It’s the Episcopal church. Do you know what
chrysostom means? Okay. It’s classic Greek. Chrysostomus which
means golden tongue. So Saint John Chrysostom is the patron Saint of preachers. Did you know that? I didn’t know that until
today either just so you know. The little red
church on the hill. We’re at Saint John’s
Northwestern Military Academy. School is not in session now. – [Jack] Yes and no. – [John] Is it summer school? – [Jack] Yes. We either
run our summer school which has right now
105 students in it. Rented the facility
to someone for camp. – [Counselor] Good job, Warren. – [Jack] But what
we’re doing here, this is Adventure Camp. Primarily a boarding camp. – [Counselor] Good job, buddy. We have young people who
come back year after year. They ultimately will
come to school here, many of them. – [John] Talk about a
typical school year. – [Jack] The question
invariably is well what did your son
or your daughter do? What mistake did they make
that you’re sending them off to a boarding school? And it’s military school. Well there’s nothing
true to that. This is not a place
for bad people. We are primarily a college
preparatory school. This is the oldest
building on campus. – Oh it is. – There is a very,
very clear structure. There is an order, with a rank, and it is a school run by cadets who are managed by adults. Our young people have tremendous
leadership opportunities. We’re an international
student body. We have, last year, 19
states and 18 countries represented on this campus. – [John] That’s great. – [Jack] We run
about 230 youngsters. The Victory Memorial
Chapel recognizes men at this Academy who
went off to World War I. Now, it was all
boys for 134 years – Until today. – Until today. You know
this is the 21st century, but I will tell you
as head of school, what my desire is is when
a young person leaves this campus they
can honestly look at their parent or
look at their community and say I’m a good son.
I’m a good daughter. I’m gonna be a good
person in my community. And I’m gonna help solve
problems in my community and in the world. – We’re with Pipe
Major Brian Donaldson. How are you Sir? – I’m very well.
Nice to meet you. – Pipe Major. – Yes. – Okay, what does that refer to? – Well it’s a rank
in the British army and it’s basically
the head honch of the pipes and drums. (pipe music) – [John] What do you
do here on campus? – [Brian] Well, I teach
the cadets bagpipes. – [John] Are there many schools
that have a piping program? – [Brian] No. Not in the States. It’s quite unique actually. I would suggest that
there’s maybe three, perhaps four if
there are at all. So we’re pretty unique here in the respect that we’ve got
a pipes and drums program. And it’s proving to
be very, very popular. – [John] And this is
going to be a practice for those who are
learning, right? – I make them. Yes. I
basically do it as a hobby now. There are different types of
bagpipes all over the world, but I make the Great
Highland bagpipe, as I’ve called, you
know, Scottish bagpipes. So that piece of wood
becomes, it comes out you see. – That’s what that is? – That’s what that is,
that’s a practice chanter. – [John] Is this out of the
same black wood we looked at? – Yes. – [John] It is. – This is black wood, but
this wood here is ebony. – [John] Is it called
the Highland bagpipe or the Great Highland bagpipe? – [Brian] The Great
Higland bagpipe. – [John] Oh it is. I thought
you were just being boisterous. – [Brian] No. No. That is
the proper term for it. The Great Highland bagpipe
because it’s louder and more obnoxious than any
other bagpipe, you know. – [John] Louder
and more obnoxious. – [Brian] Yeah. It’s a
mysterious instrument and you know when
they get to hear it and see what we do, parade wise and playing wise, they take a liking to it,
they take a shining to it. It’s very much inspiring,
and it’s my job to keep the pipers inspired, and take them the
extra mile, you know. – I’m at Lapham Peak
which is the highest point in Waukesha County. It’s just over 1200 feet. It’s named after Increase Lapham who was a weather scientist. In fact in the mid 1800s, he developed the
National Weather Service. This is 45 feet. You can
see southeastern Wisconsin. You can see Illinois from here. It’s great to be able to see the downtown village
of Delafield, but it really puts
things in perspective because there is 94
and we are south of 94 and this is still Delafield. So Delafield is more
than just the village. The downtown
Delafield. It’s big. North. East. South. (pleasant music) (laughing) West. – [John] From the
front of the building, nobody would know there’s
a gas station in the back. – You’re limited
to what you can do for signage out here and stuff. So this is what
they came up with when they built the building. – I think it’s
perfect. Don’t you? – Yes. I do. People can fill up their
car, come in, grab a snack and they’re wow, you have
a butcher shop in here? Yeah we do. We have a broccoli
bacon loaded potato salad. That’s the fire and ice salad. – [John] It’s a grocery
store, though, as well. – Yeah. The concept
was always here. We just kind of
twirked a little. The meat market
used to be leased and now we run all
of it together. – [John] All of it. What’s prime meats mean? – [Billy] USDA prime is
what really separates us from other stores. On top of being just
prime, we age it for at least six weeks. It brings a lot of people in. – [John] There’s not
much you can’t find here. – [Jamie] Yeah. – [John] Do you have
bakery stuff as well? – [Harold] Yep fresh muffins
that we bake everyday. – [Jamie] And then
we do a few local. – Yeah we bring in some
fresh bakery from outside. Periwinkle in Waukesha. – [John] So close. – Yep.
– [Jamie] Close. – [John] And is
this a lunch place? Do people sit down and? – [Jamie] Yeah. We grill
out every Thursday. – [Harold] We grill
brats, burgers, ribeye steaks, and hot dogs. – [Billy] USDA
prime steak burger. It’s all stuff we
make ourselves. – [John] It’s so good. So you make your own
bratwurst, right? – [Billy] Many, many
different flavors. – [John] It’s a big brat though. – Yeah. No we don’t
make them small. – You don’t make– (laughs) – We don’t make them small. – It’s a half pound each! – Almost a half pound, yeah. They’re big brats. – [John] This is everyday? – [Harold] Yep. Everyday.
365 days we’re open. The deli and the gas station. – [John] I’m gotta go
now. I’ll see you later. I’ve gotta finish my work. So I’ve been to
Delafield one time. It’s called Wholly Cow. And it, holy cow! It’s the best ice
cream and custard. I want the Wholly
Cow custard, vanilla. Can you do that? Holy cow. So KM it stands
for Kettle Moraine. So we’re in the Kettle Moraine? – We’re not. We’re in Wales. – We’re in Wales. – Right next to Delafield. A lot of kids from Delafield
go to Kettle Moraine and we’re talking girls soccer. – [John] Why? – Because it was a team
that nobody thought was gonna do much last year. And their staff put
together this idea that we’re gonna play everybody, and we’re gonna be
in such great shape from the middle of the season on that we’re gonna beat
teams because of that. – [John] And did they? – [Mike] And they
did and it worked. Semi-finals at state
they lost to Bayport. Bayport was 24 and
1. Had a great record and they lost in overtime. This program was
led by nine seniors and Blair Cruikshank,
she’s the leading scorer. And she’s gonna not go
to college next year because she’s going
to be working out with the US Speed Skating team. Her mom, Bonnie Blair.
Her dad also was on the Olympic team
as a speed skater. She’s just one of
many of these Seniors that did a great
job with this team. – [John] How big is this school? – [Mike] 1500. Division one. And their gonna be
good for a while. – [John] We’re at
Kettle Moraine. It’s in Wales,
outside of Delafield. Home of the– – [Mike] Lasers. – [John] We’re talking soccer. – [Mike] Thanks John. – [John] Girls
soccer. Thanks Mike. – [Mike] You bet. – You gotta love a
community that tells you where you are, when
it was established, and what you can do here. You can do some curling
and you can do some hockey. Maybe not today, but
you can do it here. And when you’re done
doing all of that. You can do nothing, but feel
welcome doing it of course. We’re at the Naga-Waukee
War Memorial Golf Course. Naga-waukee. What does it mean? – We tell everybody it means
land between two lakes. Which it is land
between two lakes, but it’s a combination
of Pewaukee Lake and Lake Nagawicka. – [John] It’s a
beautiful course. Is this a private club? Who can play this? – [Tom] This is a
strictly public club. Open to all
abilities. All people. It was opened in 1968. It continues to be one
of the most popular golf courses in Wisconsin. It’s becoming one of the
premiere destination stops for golf worldwide. We’ve had people come
from England, Australia. We will do approximately
40,000 players for the year. – [John] Do kids come out? – Absolutely. We have
great junior programs. Parents and kids can
play free on many of our golf courses
after three o’clock. – [John] Oh really.
I had no idea. – We encourage that. Yep.
Free rentals as well. Okay. So put your
hands on there. – And what’s a good
age to start your kid? – As soon as they show interest. I mean as young as
four or five years old. We have em out here. – Oh wait. Hold on. – [Tom] Parents
that play golf wanna get their kids involved. You’re supposed
to look that way– Because that means they
can just keep playing. That’s your target right there. There’s so many good
aspects to the game. The fitness. The
family aspect of it. It’s fun to be outside. Our summers are relatively
short here in Wisconsin. So the more time you
can spend outside. – [John] But to spend a
couple hours walking this, can you walk this instead of–? – [Tom] You can walk this. It’s considered a
challenging walk. We have a lot of customers
that will ride nine, and walk the back, or
ride the back nine. As you can see we’re
standing on a very hilly part of the golf course right here. So it’s a good workout. We’re open sunrise
to sunset everyday. – [John] And do people come
and learn how to golf here? – [Tom] Oh yes. I’ve had
lessons where we’ve sat out here and nobody hit the
ball for half hour. – [John] Really? – [Tom] Sure. – I was on the
phone with my sister who says I was at
a wedding here. So you have some weddings here. You have a restaurant
that’s open everyday. It’s quite an operation. – [Ramona] It is. We
have so many things. We have outdoor dining. We have the big terrace.
We have a patio. We named it after
my father, Jack, because he used
to stand out here with his accordion
and play for people. – [John] It’s such
a great story. To see families who have these
family companies, you know? – Yes. I always remember
my grandma and grandpa and they always made
us feel so welcome and made our customers
feel so welcome. We’re a family. We’re
not super corporate. And we cook all our food fresh. We don’t throw it in hot boxes. The chefs are out
there cooking your food right before it goes out. – [John] And you
came here, what year? – [Ramona] 1981. – The building was actually
built in the early 1900’s. Opened in 1905, and
it’s been a hotel. It was a disco at one point. Different schools. – This couldn’t be nicer. Do you get a lot
of lake traffic? – We do. We do. It’s a
busy lake. It’s a fun lake. People from Chicago, Milwaukee. On a Friday night, we
have over a 1000 people. – [John] A 1000 people
through here in an evening? – [Ramona] In an evening.
It’s a well oiled machine. – We also have our
shrimp boil monthly throughout the summer.
It’s a good time. We boil the shrimp right
over on the fire pit, and then bring it up to
the buffet for everybody. – [John] What is most popular? – [Mark] We’d say some of
our steaks. Our seafood. The walleye pike. – [Ramona] This is our
wild caught walleye. Brown butter pecan
glaze on top. Wild rice. – [John] Future wise,
what are you hoping? – [Mark] That’s a big question. – Keep going with the times. We added on a wine
room. A water feature. Bringing in more
sustainable foods and keeping up with the times. As well as keeping like
our German heritage and traditional food alive. – If you’re coming to Delafield, just come a little
further to Genesee Depot. You have to experience
this property. It’s called Ten Chimneys. You will not be disappointed. You can see everything. – Right. So yes. This is one of the highest
points in Ten Chimneys. – [John] Ten
Chimneys. It’s because there are 10 chimneys here. – [Randy] That is correct. – [John] The main house. – [Randy] Yeah the main
house which has six chimneys. The cottage, we have two. We have the studio. – [John] That has
one. We have one more. – That’s right here
over the creamery. This is really ground
zero for American theater. This is where Alfred and
Lynn would spend a lot of time practicing their lines. They would spend time dancing. They loved being
on the live stage. They loved an audience. Prior to Alfred and Lynn acting, you would speak. Then
I wait til you finish. And then I would speak. And Alfred, they felt
that was not natural. And so they started
speaking over lines. So I would speak– – And then I was talking
because (indistinct) Because that’s how people talk. – And that felt more natural. Exactly. Exactly.
You’re very good. (laughing) – [John] And did they
ever live here full time? – Yes this was Lynn
and Alfred’s bedroom. They used to spend
their winters here, but then when they retired this is where they
retired to, Ten Chimneys. The nice thing you
about it you had Katherine Hepburn,
Laurence Olivier. This is Lynn dying
Helen Hayes’ hair. Alan Alda loved this space here. He would actually sit
in a chair right here. Why don’t you sit there? And many other actors
would come out here, and they would spend
their summers here. Carol Channing said
when you’re invited to Ten Chimneys it’s
as if you’d died and gone to heaven. And our Master Teacher, Stephen
Mckinley Henderson said, “Coming to Ten Chimneys
is like going to heaven “and not having to die.” This is where all
the tours begin. Also downstairs
we have a theater and a studio space. This is the Lynn
Fontanne Theater. As you know in New York, there’s Lynn Fontanne Theater. We wanted to provide
a similar space here. You can press and see
one of the Lunt’s plays. – [John] I love the
fact that you were able to assemble all of
these playbills. – Yeah. Well you know,
people loved the Lunt’s. They were all over the country. We really wanna honor the Lunt’s in everything we do
here at Ten Chimneys. – [John] There’s a
fellowship program. – Lunt Fontanne
Fellowship program which is the preeminent
program for theater actors with a minimum 20 years
of acting experience. The wonderful thing
about us is that there is no other program in
the country that’s like this. – This is Maria Luther
and she’s the owner of this yellow barn that
was red for a few years. Wasn’t it? – Yes it was. – And before that it was
yellow with a big smile on it. – It was. And everyone loved it. It was the smiley barn.
It was iconic. Yes. About 17 years ago,
a new owner came and they took the smiley off. – [John] And how long
have you owned it? – I’ve only owned the
barn for a few months. It’s a brand new endeavor to put a new toy and
candy store in the barn, and to bring back
the smiley face. It’s a landmark! People from all over Wisconsin,
outside of Wisconsin, know this barn because it
is right on the highway. Absolutely Dick’s is staying. They are a part of the
whole fabric of Lake Country and they’re staying. – [John] Are you glad it’s back? – [Mike] Oh yeah. Absolutely. – Your dad started
this business? – Yep. Dad started
business in 1982. – [John] It’s kind
of an ideal location for fishing, isn’t it? – [Mike] Oh absolutely.
We have 35 lakes within 15 miles of the store. – [John] And the business
is live bait and tackle? – Live bait and tackle
strictly. Fishing, leaches, nightcrawlers, wax worms,
leaf worms, red worms. And then of course we
have 15 tanks of minnows. All different species.
Different types in the year. We have the largest
selection of live bait in the Midwest. – [John] You do.
And when this airs it will be the
smiley barn again. You’ve seen it all. – Absolutely. Yeah.
Coming full circle here. – Delafield’s not
only in Lake Country. It is the heart of Lake Country. You have 30 seconds
to tell us why Delafield, Wisconsin
is the best place in the world to
live, work, and play. And Mayor Kent Attwell
you can start right now. – Great. Well, John, we
love the city of Delafield for its semi-rural environment. Its outstanding schools
and its historic downtown where we have lots
of great restaurants, shops and four hotels. This all surrounds Lake
Nagawicka on the Bark River, where you can swim,
kayak, and boat, even ice fish. Right next door is
Lapham Peak State Park where you can go
cross country skiing and hiking. So the next time you’re
driving down Highway 94 and you see the
yellow smiley barn, Why don’t you stop by
and visit. Carpe diem. – [John] Thank you.
Good job, Mayor. – You can do some, um, some… – [Woman] Towing. towing. Ten Chimneys and it’s because
