History Tour at Green Lake Conference Center
The Green Lake Conference Center’s history dates back to the early 1800s. Winnebago Indians, Pioneer Settlers, a wealthy Chicago couple, a Chicago development company, American Baptist visionaries and religious leaders of today are all part of this special place. One of the more famous moments in the Conference Center’s history is known as the Lawson Era. Learn about Victor and Jessie Lawson and how they influenced the landscape – from paved roads to unique buildings to several towers – on the Green Team’s historic walking tour!
