Help us preserve our history for generations to come

The volunteers who created our museum and those who staff it and maintain it are proud and pleased to offer to the public the history of the Geneva Lake area.  There is always more to be done. Updating displays, developing new display areas, helping with museum events, guiding and informing museum guests (docent), historical research, little projects and ongoing projects - all of this is done by volunteers.   If you really enjoy local history come share your time and talents with us!

Docents are requested to work twice a month for a three hour period of time (10am-1pm or 1pm-4pm week days or 12pm-3pm Sundays).  All docents will be thoroughly trained in their responsibilities.

This example shows that this image will have to be 50px in width and 50px in height to look perfect on the website. So the real image url will be "images/YOUR IMAGE NAME.jpg/gif/png
