Memories from Wisconsin

Lake Geneva

Lake Geneva is a resort city on Geneva Lake in southeastern Wisconsin. The lakeside Shore Path is dotted with Gilded Age mansions, many built by wealthy Chicagoans. Nearby, the 19th-century Black Point Estate and Gardens was the summer home of Chicago beer magnate Conrad Seipp. The Queen Anne - style house has Victorian furnishings. Local beaches include Big Foot Beach State Park, which has trails and picnic areas

With over 100 years of mail service, they still deliver mail to about 75 homes around the lake on a daily basis from June 15 −September 15. The Walworth departs promptly at 10:00 a.m. every day with a load of passengers, mail and very unique mail person. The Mailboat returns to the Riviera Docks at 12:30 pm after its 2.5 hour cruise around the entire lake.
