Geneva County was established on December 26, 1868 and was named after the county seat, the town of Geneva. The town of Geneva started as a small trading post in 1820. It was located where two rivers joined for ease of transporting the goods for the trading post, by the Yonge Brothers. The town has encountered lots of problems over the years. It was washed away by the Lincoln Flood (not sure when) and again in 1929. The county courthouse has also burned down twice. The current courthouse was built over the site of an old elementary school. It has a Uh-1 "Huey" Helicopter on display on the courthouse grounds and a nice Veterans Memorial.
The American Lunch Cafe serves homemade southern food. That means very tasty food, lots of fried food and no caring about the cholesterol crisis. Outside, the building in concrete block painted white. Inside are bits of nostalgia (what we call Americana) and items reflecting the importance of God, country and family. They have a nice mural dedicated to those serving and having served in the military. The owners were very friendly. They do not serve dinner. Hours are 6 AM to 2 PM Tuesday through Sunday. They are closed on Monday.
Favorite Dish: I had a nice thick slab of country ham with mashed potatos, green beans and a big biscuit. Tasted great!
