Visit the Geneva History Center during your lunch hour, noon to 1 p.m. for the Brown Bag Lunch Series "Up in Flames: The Iroquois Theater Disaster"  Despite it's statements that it was "absolutely fire-proof", the Iroquois Theater in Chicago burned to the ground in 1903.  Becoming known as the single-deadliest building fire in United States history, it claimed over 600 lives, including three sisters from a prominent Geneva family.  Learn about the events leading up to the fire and how Geneva was affected.
