Flooded in 1943, Geist Reservoir was the result of decades of planning. Along with Morse Reservoir, these man-made lakes were seen as a solution to Indianapolis’s water supply needs. Join our speakers, local historian Robert Bowling and area descendant and genealogist Susan Lucas, to learn how the community of Germantown and surrounding farms were bought out by the Indianapolis Water Company to make this happen and what life was like for those who lived where Geist now sits. If you’re a descendant of a family from this area, bring your memories and records! Registration requested.
