Living in Lake Geneva, WI

The Kinzie family first stumbled upon Geneva Lake in 1831 on an exploration trip between Fort Dearborn and Fort Winnebago near the Fox and Wisconsin River portage. Migrating forest tribes were removed to Kansas by the United States Army in the mid-19th century. Lake Geneva was also a site on the reverse route for slaves escaping Eastern Kentucky and Southern Illinois. After the Civil War, the town became a popular destination for Chicago families and their summer homes. Lake Geneva became known as the "Newport of the West" as more and more families built mansions along the lakeshore. Today, Lake Geneva is still filled with homes from this era, representing the town’s Victorian-era history. Local residents live in apartments in Lake Geneva to enjoy scenic lakeside attractions in one of Wisconsin’s most beautiful towns.

Lake Geneva Attractions and Special Events

The Geneva Lake Shore Path is an accessible 21-mile walk along the Geneva Lake shoreline. Visitors can enjoy a stroll with views of the lake and the beautiful homes along the shore.
