Get to know Geneva, IL
Geneva is a western middle class suburb of Chicago and is the county seat of Kane County. The village was incorporated in 1836 and benefited economically from its location on the Fox River. Geneva is known as a popular tourist spot because of its scenic location on the river as well as a vast system of bike trails. Notable attractions include the historic Fabyan Windmill, a 19th century working Dutch windmill that has been featured on US postage stamps, and Fifth Third Bank Ballpark where the Kane County Cougars baseball team plays. Geneva has experienced population growth in recent decades, in part as a result of Chicago’s urban sprawl. Each June, Geneva hosts its annual Swedish Days Festival to celebrate the ancestral roots of the town’s founders.
