Default The History Of Geneva Point & J A Greene At Lake Winni Museum

On Wed., July 17th at 7pm, the Lake Winnipesaukee Museum will host historian Cristina Ashjian with her talk ‘Geneva Point: from Poultry Farm to Summer Camp’ exploring the early history of Geneva Point in Moultonborough, which celebrates its centennial this year.
This program is free for members of the organization; $5 fee for non-members. Reservations are recommended by calling 603-366-5950 or emailing to lakewinnipesaukeemuseum@gmail.com
In her presentation, Ashjian will cover the early history of the Geneva Point property on Moultonborough Neck, which was the site of JA Greene’s acclaimed Roxmont Poultry Farm from 1890-1896, and later the Winnipesaukee Inn from 1907-1919. The mayor of Laconia from 1901-1903, JA Greene was also the owner of the New Weirs Hotel. The Greene brothers, purveyors of Nervura patent medicine, were Moultonborough’s earliest estate builders, with their country houses known as Roxmont and Windermere located on Long Island.
Cristina Ashjian is the Chair of Moultonborough’s Heritage Commission, and a speaker for the NH Humanities.
