Switzerland County was named by John Dufour, an early Swiss settler who began a vineyard there in 1801 with his siblings – one of the first communities of this type in the U.S. The county was organized in 1814 and the county seat was named Vevay, after Dufour’s home in Vevay, Switzerland. The George Ash house in Lamb, Indiana is thought to be the state’s oldest extant brick house, built between 1798 and 1803.
