We have had many Swiss Settlements in are area including one back along are main creek behind are house in the woods we have 150 acres so there is a lot you can see he if you can follow the old wagon trail along most of the creek and see some old rotten wood, rocks from where houses use to sit, Back in the early 1800s if you go up across the ridge down few more you will go into my friends property in which has a 1750s Trading post waiting for weeds to die down so I can go detect.
