Walworth County Historical Society


Zenda is an unincorporated community in the Town of Linn, Walworth County, Wisconsin, United States. It is located south of Lake Geneva and just north of the Illinois border.

There was no village in the town (Linn); but in 1901 the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company built its Chicago and Janesville line across sections 36, 35, 27, 28. 29, 30, making a station named Zenda, in the southeast quarter of section 28, where a village may grow about its store and creamery and add its own to some larger history of Linn.
