For me, one of the great joys of living at Steppingstone is hearing the carillon bells fron the nearby and also historic Congregational church. They ring on the hour with a hymn. So in three minutes, as my dad would have said, "it's eleven bells."

One of the merchants, Phillip Moore, went into business with his father, Jabish Moore, who came to Lake Geneva in 1856 and opened a grocery store. Phillip took over the business in 1872, and in 1875 built the home now known as Steppingstone.
