Let's produce a video documentary about the Fox River and how important it has been in the development of Geneva for over 175 years.

The History of the Fox River in Geneva, Illinois video program will explore the early days of Native American settlements in the Geneva area as well as the economic opportunities the river provided for such businesses as the Butter and Cheese Manufacturing Company, Bennett Mill, Howell Company and the Charles Pope Glucose Company to name just a few.  This 20 minute video survey of how the Fox River serves the community of Geneva will also detail the beauty of the river and the many recreational activities available to all local citizens.  The video clip provides a brief sample of some of the personal stories we will tell to detail the rich history of our Fox River in Geneva, Illinois.

The History of the Fox River in Geneva, Illinois program is another in the continuing series Geneva Stories produced for the Geneva History Center.  Other videos in this series can be viewed on the Geneva History Center YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/GenevaHistoryCenter/videos.
