History and significance[edit]

As one of three "Greenbelt Communities" built by the federal government during the 1930s (the other two are Greenbelt, Maryland and Greendale, Wisconsin), Greenhills was designed to be surrounded by a "belt" of woodland and natural landscaping. Many families include third- and fourth-generation descendants of the village's original "pioneers" who occupied the original International-style townhomes. The original government-built area, the Greenhills Historic District, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[7] Also listed on the National Register in the community is the James Whallon House, which serves as the village hall.[8][9]
