Below is some general information about New Glarus:
New Glarus is a village in Green County, Wisconsin, United States at the intersection of Wisconsin Highways 69 and 39. It has a population of 2,172 according to the 2010 census. Since 2000 it has had a population growth of 2.9 percent. The village and the town that surrounds it, was named after the Canton of Glarus in eastern Switzerland. The community was founded in 1845 by immigrants from Glarus, Switzerland and was incorporated in 1901. New Glarus is a popular tourist destination best known for its Swiss heritage, old world architecture, ethnic dining, small independently owned craft brewery, and outdoor festivals. More than 160 years after it was founded, New Glarus has maintained much of its Swiss heritage and old world traditions. Swiss-style chalets and flower boxes filled with red geraniums grace the streets of the village and Swiss flags fly next to the American flag at many businesses and homes. Old World meat markets, restaurants, and a Swiss bakery are also found in downtown New Glarus, along with folk art, museums, and Swiss-style shops. Many Swiss customs are still alive in New Glarus, including the card game Jass, yodeling, and flag tossing. Today New Glarus is the best known Swiss settlement in America.
Travel and tourism is the largest contributor to the New Glarus economy. The largest employers in New Glarus are LSI, which makes Jack LinkÕs Beef Jerky, the New Glarus School District, New Glarus Home, New Glarus Brewing Company, New Glarus Hotel & Landhaus, and Bank of New Glarus. The median income for a household in the village was $45,000, and the median income for a family was $53,438. Males had a median income of $32,423 versus $28,042 for females. The per capita income for the village was $21,392. About 6.9% of families and 6.6% of the population were below the poverty line, including 8.9% of those under age 18 and 10.0% of those age 65 or over.
In 1993 Deborah and Dan Carey founded the New Glarus Brewing Company in New Glarus, making Deborah Carey the first woman to found and operate a brewery in the United States. The brewery grew quickly and in 2004 it broke ground on a new $21 million brewery to handle increased demand for its product. Selling its products exclusively in Wisconsin, today the New Glarus Brewing Company is the 21st largest craft brewer and 32nd largest overall brewing company in the country. In 1999 New Glarus was chosen as the future home of the Swiss Center of North America, a cultural center dedicated to the preservation and celebration of Swiss culture. Chicago, New York, and Toronto had also been considered, but New Glarus was ultimately chosen because of its central location and the large concentration of Swiss Americans in the vicinity. Plans for the Swiss Center include a research library, historical archive, exhibits, conference rooms, and offices. $3 million has been pledged so far, with a majority of the funds coming from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, State of Wisconsin, Canton of Glarus, and corporations, including General Casualty Insurance, Nestle USA, Novartis, Phillip Morris Europe, and Victorinox.
Despite its small size, New Glarus is known for many traditional Swiss dishes, including specialties rarely seen outside of Switzerland. Foods served in New Glarus include: Ršschti, Kalberwurst, Spaetzli, Landjaeger, and Braetzeli. Other examples of Swiss cuisine commonly available in New Glarus include bratwurst, fondue, €lplermagronen, Zopf, chaeschuechli, schnitzel, chocolates, and Swiss Stollen.
