The Alpine Hills Historical Museum inside the Sugarcreek Information Center: The focal point of downtown Sugarcreek, the Alpine Hills Historical Museum contains three floors of historic artifacts depicting the early days of the Swiss and Amish heritage unique to this area. A visitor’s trip through the museum starts with a 12-minute video presentation about Amish culture and the Swiss immigrants’ impact on the Village. The tour continues through numerous audio-visual displays that take one back to an earlier era including 1895 fire equipment, a 1900’s Amish kitchen, a complete replica of a 1890 cheese house, an early wood shop with hand tools, an early print shop, and much more. Don’t miss seeing the Swiss Alp Horns on the top floor!
The Sugarcreek Information Center is also located in the lobby of the museum. Here, visitors can get free information about many local and area attractions and events such as the Ohio Swiss Festival and the Fabulous 50s Fling and Car Show.
