About SCHS

The Swiss Community Historical Society honors and preserves the history of the Bluffton-Pandora community. The society owns and operates the Swiss Homestead at 8350 Bixel Road, Bluffton, Ohio.

A volunteer board oversees the preservation and renovation of this historic property. Acquisitions include collecting and preserving papers, books, artifacts, and records of historical interest, as well as property related to local Swiss heritage. Objects made and used by local settlers are part of the SCHS collection.

The society develops programming focused on local history, trains docents who give tours of the homestead, and coordinates volunteer support for maintenance and special events.
