About the LG-HPC.

   In 1996 the City  adopted a Historic Preservation Ordinance and established the Lake Geneva Historic Preservation Commission (HPC), to educate citizens and promote historic preservation in the area. 

   The Commission has placed seven individual buildings on the National
and State Registers of Historic Places, along with two historic districts.    The Main Street Historic District is the original commercial core of the City and the Maple Park Historic District is the original residential section of the Village of Geneva.
   We have also distributed information on tax credits for historic restoration and presented historic plaques to over 120 buildings in the City, all in the hope of encouraging a renewed interest in restoring homes and commercial buildings in the community.  New projects under consideration are a historic walking path near the White River and improving the condition of Pioneer Cemetery. 

   The LG-HPC, through persistent efforts, has convinced the National Trust for Historic Preservation that Lake Geneva is a special place, DDD Logohistorically and otherwise.  In January 2009 the National Trust  put Lake Geneva on its  list of a Dozen Distinctive Destinations.  Our community was selected from over 160 applicants.  Learn more about this on our News & Programs page.
