Almost anywhere you go around Lake Geneva, you are walking in the footsteps of the past. The lake itself was formed by glaciers; some of the boats on the lake go back a hundred years or more. Native Americans of the past etched the walking path into the land that crosses the lawns of Chicago’s elite who took refuge here after the Great Chicago Fire. Join us as we learn about what makes Lake Geneva a Distinctive Destination.    Chris Brookes from the Black Point Speaker’s Bureau will be presenting this informative talk. Chris is the Outreach Coordinator for Black Point Estate, the Wisconsin Historical Society's historic house museum in Lake Geneva. She was born and raised in Lake Geneva and taught school in Michigan and Texas before returning home to conclude her teaching career. She earned her education degrees from University of Michigan and Viterbo University.  She presents a variety of programs and is active in local history, genealogical, and historic preservation groups.  All are welcome to attend this free presentation.
