The First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, visited the Greenbelt and Greendale town sites during 1936 and 1937. She was also directly involved in the planning of the Greenbelt project. About Greendale, she was quoted as saying "I wish  that every group of architects would have a woman sit at their elbows to give advice on such minor details as the proper placing of things which she uses in daily work."
