Connect with 19th century Swiss immigrant life at our annual Harvest Fest where daily routines and responsibilities of the past – cheese making, black smithing, yarn spinning, basket weaving – are re-created. Enjoy a Swiss brätzeli cookie-making demonstration. Talk to Civil War re-enactors, a wheelwright and a sausage maker. (You can even buy their products!) For those of you who are feeling ambitious, practice your three Rs in a one-room schoolhouse. After all that work, relax and enjoy some live music on our picturesque grounds. Enjoy special event reduced admission.
