An almost $800,000 project to build a visitor center at the Limberlost State Historic Site in Geneva has been fully financed, thanks to the Indiana State Museum, which put up most of the money, and local donors, who raised $200,000.
"We have reached the goal. It is a tremendous accomplishment, especially considering the size of the community we have," the site's director, Randy Lehman told the Berne Tri-Weekly News, noting Geneva's population of approximately 1,200 people.
