'I don't think you're going to see this anywhere in the world': Greendale chimney artist and repairman Al Emmons explains his passion
GREENDALE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- While Christmas decorations are the main attraction this time of year wherever you go, visitors to the quaint village of Greendale, with its Norman Rockwell appeal will want to look above the roofline of more than 200 'Greendale originals', houses built during the great depression. What they'll find is artwork, sculptures on stucco chimneys, each with a story of their own.
The artwork is all thanks to the passion of one man and his family. Al Emmons will tell you he's a chimney repairman first, and an artist second, but it doesn't take long to find out where his passion really lies.
On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Amanda Becker met the repairman and artist who added a creative touch to the chimneys of Greendale.
