Herrington History

The location of Herrington on the bank of the river was actually once the town’s first dairy creamery, producing butter and cheese. The story begins with James and Charity Herrington who left Philadelphia to head west, settling and building a cabin on the bank of what is now known as Fox River. They raised their children here, becoming known as Geneva’s first settlers.

A few years later, a small dairy creamery was built here, using the cool river waters to keep the barrels of milk cold and producing butter and cheese for locals. It would later be known as the Geneva Rocks Spring Creamery.

After the creamery ceased to exist, the building had various other uses until 1982 when Geneva made efforts to revive the waterfront district, and in 1993, Herrington opened its doors for the first time. In 1999, the Pump House was introduced after extensive renovations. In 2001, Herrington invested in a 21 guest room addition to the property. In 2003, Herrington unveiled The Spa at Herrington. Ongoing efforts have been made to improve the property and boutique hotel offerings continuously.
