Enjoy the fresh lake air and tour the elegant Victorian estate of Chicago beer baron Conrad Seipp. After enjoying a scenic boat tour of beautiful Geneva Lake, a guided tour takes guests through the grounds of Black Point Estate & Gardens.
Designed by Adolph Cudell and built in 1888, Black Point is a unique late Victorian Queen Anne residence. For generations, it was the summer home of one family until 2005. Now open to the public, with furnishings and decorations virtually intact, the house is a national treasure. This book, written by Anne Celano Frohna, tells the story of the Seipp family and the house at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Copiously illustrated. Details below.
