Kooky Cooky House Presented by

A Cedarburg Christmas


For those of you who grew up in Milwaukee in the 1960s and 1970s, you may recognize this gem - it's a nostalgic Milwaukee icon called the Kooky Cooky House! The original house was designed in 1960 by Walter E. Kroening for Capitol Court, a Milwaukee area shopping mall, as a draw for families and has lived on in the memories of kids and adults who used to visit it every holiday season. This replica was recreated by Discovery World, giving generations of all ages another opportunity to visit this "automated" gingerbread cookie factory - it will open this weekend in Cedarburg!

We have a number of busy elves to thank for bringing this gem to Cedarburg! The Kooky Cooky House is owned by local personality Gino Salomone, whose passion for the house has kept the spirit alive. Milwaukee building company JP Cullen donated their time and talents to rebuilding the exterior this past weekend with materials donated by Zuern Building Products - we couldn't have done it without them! And our own City Administrator Mikko Hilvo took the day off to work with Patrick Curran from Festivals of Cedarburg and the Cedarburg Lions Club (Cedarburg, WI) to rebuild the inside..which was brought to life soon by Andy Lyneis Electrical Services.

Our plan is to have the Kooky Cooky House open at the same times as Santa's Workshop - watch for the opportunity to walk through on these dates!
