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.
