Thank you for the Kultur Haus Helvetia Roof! The roof was finished July 22. Donations kept coming in as the work progressed and we were able to add both lower side roofs, the downstairs bedroom, and the garage to the project. This leaves only the metal roof on the original store building to be done. We hope to patch that enough to get by for a while and begin renovating the store/post office restroom--a badly needed update. The numbers came out well with $507.28 remaining after $12,595.72 was spent on the roof. We have permission from a donor to move the remaining money from the roof project to the restroom one. 

Kultur Haus Helvetia is both a building and an organization serving the Helvetia community and its visitors. Kultur Haus Helvetia has multiple components:

  • Helvetia General Store. Food, beverages, ice, household items, ice cream, maple syrup, T-shirts, and much more.
  • Fasnacht Mask Museum. Fasnacht masks are displayed throughout the General Store and Alpen Lodge. We are in the process of collecting information on these.
  • Helvetia Alpen Lodge. Sleeping rooms. One first floor room with a private bath and 4 upstairs bedrooms with a shared bath are now available.
  • Helvetia Post Office. Open on weekdays and 10:00 to 11:00 on Saturday.
  • Helvetia Research Center. Access to information on history, genealogy, events, businesses, and recreational opportunities. Internet access is available. (Under development.)
  • Helvetia Emergency Center. Supplies, information, and shelter during emergencies. (Under development.)

The building is undergoing a thorough cleanup and renovation both inside and out. You will see some features restored to original standards and others upgraded. Volunteers have made tremendous progress with assistance from our donors.
