Fontana

Shaw-nee-aw-kee is the Potawatomi Indian word for "friend" and was a salutation given the John Kinzie party at the first visit of any white person to the village of Chief Big Foot. This is the site of today's Fontana.

Situated on the west end of beautiful Geneva Lake with a background of tree-covered, glacier-formed hills, Fontana welcomes you. As in the time of the Potawatomi, Fontana is the friendly village with a myriad of opportunities for a memorable vacation or to live with nature's beauty.

Fontana is home to The Abbey Resort, one of the area's finest resorts, and heaven to fishermen and water sport lovers. It is enriched with three churches, and an excellent school system, a comfortable library, and is home to the Geneva Lake West Chamber of Commerce. There are parks for relaxing and a beautiful sand beach. There are small shops with shopkeepers eager to assist you. The modern, efficient police, fire and rescue departments keep order and minimize emergencies.

Any season of the year Fontana awaits YOU - Shaw-nee-aw-kee-Friend.
