Nestled amid 2,000 acres of scenic parkland on the banks of the Rock River, Janesville is truly “Wisconsin’s Park Place.” Outdoor attractions include the Rotary Botanical Gardens, a 20-acre international showcase of botanic gardens. Indoors, The Armory, built in 1930, has been renovated into a venue for professional dinner theater. The Janesville Performing Arts Center, another indoor charmer, graces Main Street with a full season of theater, music and dance. Approximately 20% of Wisconsin’s buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places can be found in Janesville including the Lincoln-Tallman House, Wisconsin’s only private residence where Abraham Lincoln slept.
