Explore the African American history of Lake Ivanhoe. Only five miles east of Lake Geneva, the town of Lake Ivanhoe is rich with early African American heritage in Wisconsin.

Many African American families who founded the town still have decedents living there today. Travelers have access to the lake from a public boat landing where they are encouraged go fishing, take a walk by the lake and breathe in the rich heritage of this historic and prominent African American community.
