Moving forward with a purpose

Genoa was founded in the 1830's when travelers were passing through to other towns. At that time, pioneers bent the trees to help with their sense of direction, you can still see the bent trees in Genoa today. When Genoa first started out it consisted of four blocks, in which a sawmill and distillery were the first industries in the town. In the earlier days of Genoa, it was primarily an agriculture village, but with time Genoa has slowly developed and today the town consists of small retail shops, restaurants, service establishments, including the business district to cater to the town's residents. There are plans to continue the commercial and residential growth that Genoa has been seeing over the years. Even with the growth of the town, it still maintains its rural feeling with small town charm.
