LAKE GENEVA—Keep on walking.

The Thursday evening historical and architectural walking tours sponsored by Lake Geneva Historic Preservation Commission have been so popular this summer that the run has been extended to September 10.

The narrated 90-minute tours start every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. from the Riviera, 812 Wrigley Drive in downtown Lake Geneva through September 10.

The walks allow participants learn about famous architects, hotels and the evolution of the resort town of Lake Geneva, including buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, buildings lost or threatened, well known visitors, stories about the lake, parks and statues.

Michael Rehberg, lead interpreter at Black Point Estate in Lake Geneva, said the tour was created from a self-guided architectural walking tour booklet published by the Geneva Historic Preservation Commission. The Thursday evening walking tour script was created by Black Point Estate staff and the Geneva Lake Museum.

Call Black Point Estate at  262-248-1888 for reservations, or walk up at the Riviera to join the tour.
