You are the Swiss Center of North America
You are the Swiss Center of North America

Experience the cultural heritage of those who emigrated from the heart of Europe—Switzerland.

When we say "YOU" are the Swiss Center of North America, we mean it.  The Swiss Center is a mix of your search for Swiss roots, personal stories and our committment to make sure Swiss heritage doesn't disappear in North America.
Our work includes the preserving and the recounting of the unique stories of people who built communities with distinctive history in the United States and Canada.
The Swiss Center of North America celebrates Swiss heritage and culture.  We interpret, collect and promote the Swiss-North American experience through events, social media and our belief that collective pieces of our past truly enriches our understanding of today.
Our Donald G. Tritt Library and Archives holds more than 9,000 books, magazines and other printed materials published in the four national languages of Switzerland and English.
You'll find historic records from organizations and individuals including a nearly complete North American Swiss Singing Alliance Saengerfest collection beginning in 1897.
We welcome guests from around the world and work to promote appreciation for and awareness of Swiss heritage, culture and pride.
You don’t have to be Swiss to enjoy the Swiss Center.
We invite you to explore the Swiss story to learn about people and organizations that helped built North America.
