Geneva On The Lake – Past And Present

Posted by LOTGK on September 7, 2009

Geneva On The Lake 1960's

Geneva On The Lake 1960's

.
In the 1950’s and 60’s, Geneva On The Lake was “The Place” to go for the Summer weekends. Geneva had it all. On the Geneva strip, there was a mile of shops, restaurants, attractions, even an amusement park. Eddie’s Grill, Madsen Donuts, Firehouse Winery, and Time Square restaurant famous for their pile of fries order. Geneva was where all the cool kids hung out, including the many motorcycle gangs that would congregate on the strip by Annie’s restaurant.

Below the strip was Lake Erie and miles of white sandy beaches where bikini clad babes would shake and bake all day. The water was clear and and non-polluted. There was a pier and yes, people would actually swim in the great lake.

Flash forward forty plus years to the present. This twisted piece of rusted metal were once the entrance to the beach. These are the same white steps in the post card picture above.

The weeds are overgrown and it is not a well traveled path anymore. The steps are rickety but they still function.

Referring back to the post card picture above. This is what the beach and water look like today. As you can see, the pier is gone, the white sand is gone, the foliage is now weeds. Gone are the bikini clad babes sunbathing and in their place, large cement breakers now dominate what beach is left. Erosion has won this battle. No one swims there now or rarely even ventures down to the so-called beach.

Again, referring to the post card above, this is what is now at the bend in the beach. Round cement breakers litter the rocky eroded beach supposedly to eliminate anymore erosion. Not that it matters now.

The beach is dead. This is no longer a place where the cool kids hang out. In fact, no one hangs out at this place anymore. There are only the occasional few like myself that make the trek down the rusted steps and take in the now sad view that once was a beautiful place to visit.

Eddie’s Grill will be closing next week as Labor day signals the end of Summer and most of the businesses on Geneva On The Lake board up for the winter. For those in the area, now is the time to visit Geneva before it’s too late for this year.

    Paradise lost. What a shame as this exact thing is going on across the country and the small communities cry for help after the fact.

    That is so sad. 😦

  3. Gumby said

    It looks like a dump site now. Why are the breakers round, like donuts?

  4. Valdunagan said

    Just imagine if Geneva and all the other tourist spots would have had the vision to stop the erosion and keep the area viable. The little money spent then would reap millions of dollars now.

    Erosion is one of my favorite smites.
