A new crowdsourced exhibit, Growing Up In Geneva, is now on display at the Geneva Historical Society. The topic was chosen through a survey distributed on the Historical Society's Facebook page and email list. The topic choices were: Growing up in Geneva, Crafts and Hobbies, Coming Home (military personnel returning home), Drinking in Geneva (locally-made beverages), and Celebrities in Geneva. The clear winner was Growing Up In Geneva.
The Growing Up In Geneva exhibit features images from our collection captioned with comments posted on our Facebook page. The memories include area restaurants, bakeries, and dairies, as well as recreation spots, schools, and influential figures in the community. Stop by to see if you recall the same places and things in Geneva’s past. Growing Up In Geneva will be on display through January 2019.
