Join The American Club as it celebrates 100 years of company and Village history. In addition to year-long celebrations, the grand celebration takes place on Sunday, August 5, with a celebratory parade, a speech by Executive Chairman, Herbert V. Kohler, Jr., a traditional Kohler ice cream social – and culminates with live entertainment by Grammy-award winner Amy Grant, and fireworks.
Kohler Co., one of America’s oldest and largest privately held companies and a leader in kitchen and bath plumbing products, will commemorate the 100th anniversary of The American Club with a live concert featuring Grammy-award winning artist Amy Grant on August 5, and additional experiences throughout the year to honor the historic building.
The American Club – now a Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond resort hotel – has a storied past dating back to 1918, when it was built as a dormitory for immigrant factory workers of the company. The stately Tudor-influenced red brick landmark featuring a gabled blue slate roof and dormers, is an iconic testament to the American spirit and the company’s pursuit to preserve its links to the immigrant workers who first resided in the building. The renowned property is also recognized by both the Historic Hotels of America and National Register of Historic Places.
