Our Namesake

Genisa is named for the late Genisa “Jenny” Hughes, a child of Italian immigrants and, along with her late husband John T. “Jack” Hughes, resident of Janesville since 1958. Known for her vibrant, lively personality, Genisa was created as a way to honor her, and the Italian side of the family’s heritage.



Historic Downtown Janesville

Located at 11 N. Main St. in a beautiful Italianate building constructed circa 1865. And while we’ve retained the original charm of its exterior, inside you’ll find an updated experience that offers all the modern comforts you expect.
