Your COVID-19 Experience in Geneva, NY

From 2020-2021, Historic Geneva staff solicited submissions from Geneva community members in order to document the local COVID-19 pandemic experiences. This resulted in an exhibit that was open from July – September 2021. While the exhibit has closed, we continue to document the historic pandemic and encourage Genevans to share their stories with us.

If you have any questions or would just like to send in your own narrative, please email our Archivist at
