Helvetia: The Swiss of West Virginia

From the making of Helvetia cheese to Fasnacht and the burning of Old Man Winter – experience the Old-World Swiss traditions as they thrive today in the remote mountain community of Helvetia, West Virginia.

Descendents of nineteenth-century Swiss immigrants share and discuss their music, dance, yodeling, foodways, crafts, customs and celebrations.

Produced by Gerald Milnes
