The city of Geneseo is just south of Highway 4 and east of Highway 14 in Rice County. The city supports a post office, church, American Legion Post, a manufacturing machine shop, the “Ladies Thanksgiving Club” community room, a farmers’ co-op and a convenience store widely used by boaters and campers on their way to Kanapolis Lake. Geneseo students travel to Ellsworth to attend school as part of the Ellsworth Unified School District. Geneseo is typical “small town America”. Though not as big as it once was, it always has remained modern and progressive. It looks confidently toward its future while treasuring the past. A paramount claim to fame for Geneseo is home of television weatherman Ross Jansen, who can be seen on Wichita’s KWCH Channel 12.
