Welcome to the birthplace of Kohls Department Stores:
The village of Menomonee Falls is known as Wisconsin's largest village, but is perhaps even better known as home to the Headquarters of the Kohls Department Stores, which is now a national chain.
Kohls was listed as the 20th largest retailer in the United States in 2011. The chain currently holds hundreds of store locations in 49 states (all except Hawaii).
Kohls actually has ten store locations in the greater Milwaukee area. They are located in:
In addition to Kohls, the village of Menomonee Falls also supports nearly three thousand other commercial businesses.
Menomonee Falls is located in Waukesha County, which is in southeastern Wisconsin, about 25 miles northwest of the city of Milwaukee.
Menomonee Falls is a popular local tourist attraction for the shopping opportunities of its downtown Village Centre, featuring numerous specialty shops and art galleries. Popular local events during summer include farmers markets and concerts in the park.
This village of about 33,000 people also features dozens of churches. Denominations represented include Catholic, Episcopal, Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist, and Presbyterian.
Tourists nearly never leave town without a visit to the waterfall (pictured here) that inspired the town's name.
Also popular is Old Falls Village, a retro historical display on the grounds of a beautiful 17-acre park. Restored architecture filled with authentic artifacts and actors in period clothing offer a rare glimpse of life as it was back in the 19th century.
The park stays open until 10 pm. Guided tours are available by appointment.
Special points of interest in Old Falls Village include a log home, a school house, a barn, a railroad depot, and a dairy.
The centerpiece of Old Falls Village is the Miller-Davidson House, constructed in 1858, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
