Vagabonding Day 4: An Emotional Happening in Helvetia

Founded by Swiss immigrants in the mid-1800s, Helvetia is a tiny town in the middle of nowhere.  To get there, our GPS took us on a route that involved driving on a gravel road for half an hour. Due to the area’s isolation, Helvetia has largely maintained its Swiss traditions.  Despite a population of only 59 people, the town boasts a number of businesses including a cheese shop, a bed and breakfast, and Swiss restaurant called the Hütte.
