Willkommen to Swiss Heritage Village!

Welcome to the Swiss Heritage Village & Museum website! Chartered in 1985, the Village is now the largest outdoor museum in northern Indiana. As you visit our site and read about the buildings, grounds, and events that are sponsored by the Swiss Heritage Society, you will learn about how the Swiss settlers lived in this area more than a century ago. We hope that you will come to understand the appreciation we have for the culture of our ancestors. See you soon!

Volunteer Program

Swiss Heritage Society would like to thank the area volunteers for their endless hours of work and support. Our volunteer program is designed for people to come and enjoy their hours of work, as well as to provide a much needed effort. Volunteers are essential for the smooth daily operation of the Village and grounds. We extend an "open door" policy for any suggestion to better or beautify our Village.

We are always extending a hand to anyone who would like to donate their time to help us with volunteer opportunities involving groundskeeping, leading tours, and even being part of our events.
