Geneva Town Fund (Field-of-Interest)


Fund Est. 1996

Established by Jim Briggs, Jr. and the Bank of Geneva, the Town of Geneva Fund was created to provide support for horticulture projects or community development projects for the quaint town of Geneva.

On the national registrar for having the longest block in the state of Indiana and the home of well-known author Gene Stratton-Porter, the town is a welcomed step back in time where one can easily imagine the way things used to be…today.
Visiting the Briggs General Store will provide the shopper with pleasant memories as the hollowed sounds of one’s footsteps are heard on the wooden plank floor.  The Geneva Library also provides visitors with images of a well-preserved library while still offering modern conveniences of Internet access.
The unique town of Geneva has an impressively large number of involved and motivated citizens for the population it serves.  Rallying together to raise money for the historic Pyle Building, this group projects the features of this small town that makes it a very desirable place to live.
The two newest goals of the active Geneva residents is the extension of the Rails to Trails project creating the paved path connecting Geneva to Berne and the Welcome Center which will be located on the grounds of the historic Gene Stratton-Porter home. 
The small hamlet of Geneva is a good example of what a few energetic and motivated people can do!
