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.
Switzerland County Museums On-Line
an exhibit of works by renowned American modern art pioneer Will Henry Stevens (1881-1949), tapestry artist Jennette Tandy (1889-1968), and master printer August Mead (1905-1983). The show will run from September through December, with an opening reception during Vevay Main Street’s First Friday event, September 6th from 6-9 pm.
Special Exhibit "Stevens, Tandy & Mead Remembered"
A silent auction will begin with the debut of the “Stevens, Tandy & Mead Remembered” show on September 6th.
The Old Ferry, a framed wood engraving by August Mead, has been generously donated by Vevay Newspapers, with the proceeds going to special projects of the Switzerland County Historical Society.
