Man Fishing on Utah Lake ca.1910
This area was the site of one of the most popular entertainment and recreation areas in Utah, the Geneva Bathing Resort, attracting trainloads of visitors as far north as Ogden and as far south as Manti. The resort even had its own railroad spur. The railroads brought visitors to the resort, making regular stops near the shore of Utah Lake. At the height of its popularity, the ten-acre resort featured a hotel, a clearwater lake beach, two heated swimming pools, a pier and diving platform onto the lake, a dance pavilion, and even a zoo (Our Vineyard Heritage, pg.5, 204).
