The Switzerland County Historical Society, organized in 1925, is one of the oldest of Indiana’s county historical societies. The society has collected with a vision for the future by preserving a wide range of artifacts and documents that relay the county’s unique past. The historical society owns and operates two museums and is developing a third site.

2014 Rural Heritage Tour
A Thiebaud Family Wedding
Sept. 27 - 28, 2014

The Thiebaud farmstead is being restored so we can understand and honor Switzerland County’s past by experiencing the daily lives of pioneer citizens. A facet of their lives was re-enacted during the Rural Heritage Tour on the site and 150th anniversary of where it originally took place ~ the wedding of Emily Jane Thiebaud to John Shaw Malcomson on September 28th, 1864.
