Walworth County, Wisconsin

Welcome to the Town of Linn

About Us

Located about 65 miles northwest of Chicago and 45 miles southwest of Milwaukee, our town is an area of diverse natural beauty. Within its borders lie the north and south shores of Geneva Lake, long considered one of the most important natural resources in southern Wisconsin. Formed about 10,000 years ago, the lake is well known for its deep clear water. The town is characterized by high quality residential lakeshore development adjacent to productive farmland. Small woodlots are scattered throughout the town adding to its scenic value and rural character.

Town News Announcements


To All Boaters & Swimmers

We have received notice from the Geneva Lake Environmental Agency that there are blooms that are popping up around the lake called cyanobacteria. This is extremely harmful to pets and can lead to death. To humans, it can cause a sore throat, congestion, cough, wheezing, itchy skin, blisters, hives, diarrhea, and vomiting. It is recommended that you do not go swimming in the lake until further notice.
