LAKE GENEVA -- The newest additions, along with some of the most popular exhibits, were on display Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014, during a special preview at the Geneva Lake Museum.

"A lot of people don't realize what we have here," said docent Noel Payne, one of the volunteer guides with a seemingly unlimited wealth of knowledge about the history of Lake Geneva.

But Lake Geneva is unique in that it has a rich history stretching back to the days that the Potawatomi made their home along the shores of this spring-fed lake.

A native American display is among the new exhibits that illustrate the growth of the area through the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 to the grand estates that surround the Geneva Lake.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays through the end of February. From March through April, the museum will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This summer, the museum will be open seven days a week. Info: GenevaLakeMuseum.org
