Geneseo

Where the future grows!

Geneseo is a picturesque, vibrant, progressive arts community which is home to memorable festivals.

Located conveniently off U.S. Highway 6 or Interstate 80, Geneseo is recognizable from the interstate by Windy Point, featuring two windmills and a solar farm, at the southern edge of town.

Take Exit 19 off I-80 and drive Oakwood Avenue to take a left on State Street to experience the revitalized boulevard, home to Geneseo’s historic shopping district.  The unique collection of specialty shops, art galleries, clothing boutiques, and home decor stores is growing.

Take a break from shopping to visit a craft brewery, micro-brewery, or wine tasting room. A variety of local restaurants feature a friendly ambience to dine.

Take in a play at the Richmond Hill Theatre, learn about Underground Railroad History at the Geneseo Historical Museum, or take in nature at the Hennepin Canal Parkway State Park.

Any time of the year, you will encounter friendly faces in Geneseo.
