Switzerland County Historical Museum

This museum reveals many facets of the county’s past through such displays as Early Swiss Heritage, Veterans Remembered, Childhood Memories, Native Americans, Professions, and Domestic Arts. Among the unique treasures on display is the first piano in Indiana brought in the early 1800s from England, the actual Markland Post Office, & many valuable heirlooms from the Paul Ogle family. A collection of interesting military items from the Civil War to WW II, memorabilia from early doctors, a wonderful doll collection, and many other fascinating things bring history to life. These displays are housed in an 1860 Greek Revival Presbyterian Church.
