ⓘ Williams Bay, Wisconsin

Williams Bay is one of three municipalities on Geneva Lake. It was named for Captain Israel Williams of Massachusetts, who, with several of his sons, settled in the area in 1837. Much of the surrounding area was settled in the early 19th century by surveyors plotting roadways from the East. It was a vacation spot for wealthy Chicagoans displaced by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

This is probably the most well-known internationally for the creation of the University of Chicago Yerkes Observatory, which houses the worlds largest lens telescope Kepler, the great 40-inch. The construction of the Observatory began in 1895 and the 40-inch saw first light in may of 1897. In Observatorys first Director was George Ellery Hale, who went on to create the Observatory of mount Wilson in southern California.
