New Glarus is located in central-southern Wisconsin, in rural Green County. It is known as America's "Little Switzerland". The City was founded by Swiss immigrants from Glarus canton in 1845.



Like the rest of the United States, English is the main language in New Glarus. However, a few elderly residents still speak a sadly now-moribund local dialect of Swiss-German.
