With just over 1,300 residents, few Wisconsin villages seem to enjoy their ancestral heritage quite as much as the owners of New Glarus homes enjoy theirs. And what is that heritage, you ask? Swiss of course and New Glarus is steeped in it, and is known as America’s “Little Switzerland.”

Since 1845, Swiss immigrants have been attracted to New Glarus; the village being named for the Swiss canton from which the original 108 Swiss pioneers hailed.
That generation built the first New Glarus homes and succeeding generations along with an infusion of new Swiss immigrants, have not only built the New Glarus homes of today but have kept alive the area’s folk traditions, language and celebrations.
Not all New Glarus Homes are made of Chocolate… But Wouldn't that be Sweet!
