Genoa Community Church

The Genoa Community Church is a non-denominational church, built on its present site after the disastrous 1910 Genoa Fire burned most of the business section. Building materials were donated and community volunteer labor built the church. The bell tower and porch were added by volunteers in 1978. The Genoa Community Church is a testament to faith and volunteerism, thanks to the community spirit of local residents and the meaningful word, "Tradition."
