A classic historical resource of Lake Geneva, long out of print, has through the diligent efforts of Patrick and Mary Quinn and other helpful individuals been completely re-typed and re-published. James Simmons' "Annals of Lake Geneva Wisconsin", covering the years 1835 to 1897, is now available at the Geneva Lake Area Museum. If you have any interest at all in the history of Lake Geneva this is a must read!

Sketches of Lake Geneva: A Rich History Revisited.
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and the surrounding area is an amazing place to live. For some, it has been an amazing place to grow up, for others we are playing catch up to learn about the history and mystery of Lake Geneva.

Patrick M. Quinn has taken over 200 historical articles about the city he loves and is sharing them with all of us. Geneva Lake Museum is proud to have published Sketches of Lake Geneva: A Rich History Revisited.

We are sure you will be as excited as we are as you wander the pages that bring the history of Lake Geneva to life.
