Interesting factoid: As near as geologists can tell, Geneva Lake was formed about 20,000 years ago, as the last glacier traveled across North America. The lake is fed entirely by underground springs, and has no surface inlets. The only outlet, the White River, in the City of Lake Geneva. The earliest residents in the area were the Pottawatomi Tribe, who migrated in the 1600’s from northern Wisconsin. Their best-known leader was a chief by the name of Big Foot, which the beach on the East end of the lake has been named in honor of. Although the Wisconsin territory had been explored as early as 1634, there never was an official recorded sighting of the lake until 1831. The Native Americans called the lake “Kishwauketoe”, which loosely translates to mean Clear Water or Lake of the Sparkling Water. In 1834, a government surveyor named John Brink was sent through the territory to survey the land and name the landmarks. When Mr. Brink saw the lake, he was reminded of Seneca Lake, near his hometown of Geneva, New York. It was at this time that the lake became known as Geneva Lake in honor of his hometown. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
All maps include special points of interest laser engraved into the map face and come with a beautiful blue self-adhesive Swarovski Crystal to mark your preferred location on the map (see sample picture).
Each map is a beautiful artistic handcrafted work of art using the finest woods with special attention to every detail. Due to the natural variation in wood grain, each map will vary slightly in finish and color, some come to us all blonde and some has beautiful variances, making each one unique and one-of-a-kind. If you would prefer lighter or darker don't hesitate to ask. (Photo shown is our showroom display. Your map will be very close to this, but wood grain, knots, and final finish color may be slightly different.) Birch is our wood of preference.
Once the map is cut and engraved we hand sand multiple times, assemble and clear coat them for a lustrous wood shine. We believe that this personal attention each and every item receives makes each wooden item a unique work of art.
