“There’s a little slice of Switzerland in Indiana, right on the Ohio River, called Vevay. Settled by Swiss immigrants in 1802, the village became an enclave of wine producers, so it’s no surprise that the town holds a Swiss Wine Festival every year. Vevay still has a number of buildings from those early days, including the Benjamin Schenck Mansion, built in 1874.”
