Historic Geneva's 2022 Fall Lecture Series is on the road at historic public buildings in the city. In conjunction with the exhibition My Geneva is…Then and Now, (opening October 1) lectures are being held in collaboration with the Geneva Public Library, The Dove Block Project, and The Smith Center on the Arts.

The second program in the series will be held Thursday, October 20 at The Dove Block at 465 Exchange Street. This building has been a key part of Geneva's downtown for over 140 years and was recently returned to use after years of neglect. The lecture will be in-person only and starts at 7 p.m. at the Dove Block. The program will be presented by Charles Bauder, Gabriella D’Angelo, Jim Spates, and Kathryn Vaughn, volunteers with The Dove Block Project. They will focus on the building's 1878 construction and early use, the connection to the Dove family--particularly artist Arthur Dove, the restoration of the structure, and the current and future uses of the building.

The lecture series is supported in part by the Samuel B. Williams fund for programs in the Humanities and is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Historic Geneva office at 315-789-5151.
