Settled by James Herrington in 1835, the Geneva Local Historic District is the original town of Geneva. The District contains hundreds of historic structures dating from the 1840s through the 1960s. Downtown Geneva boasts over 100 specialty shops and restaurants, many in historic storefronts and charming Victorian-style homes.

Join Skyline Council, Preservation Partners of the Fox Valley, and Geneva’s Historic Preservation Planner, Michael Lambert, for a walking tour of the Geneva Downtown Historic District with stops at historic restaurants and pubs along the route. The crawl and walking tour will include full access of the Fargo Estate at 317 Elizabeth Place, a walk along Campbell Street of historic residential homes, State Street & Third Street Commercial Corridor, local churches, and potentially Kane County Courthouse and the Geneva Bottling Works.

Bring your friends for an afternoon of guided tours, history, beer, and fun. This event is open to the public. Admission does not include drinks. The final walking tour route, schedule and stops will be emailed to attendees prior to the event.

For those traveling to Geneva by train, a group of Skyline members will take the Union Pacific West Metra train leaving Chicago Ogilvie station in the Loop Saturday morning at 10:40 a.m. Don’t forget to purchase a Metra $8 Weekend Pass. Morning breakfast treats will be provided for those joining us by train. The train arrives just before noon in Geneva at 11:47 a.m. For those traveling by car, check out Geneva’s Downtown Public Parking Lots Map.
