This Swiss Cultural Hall In Wisconsin Serves Up Old World Fare In A Historic Setting
The Wisconsin town of Monroe is well-known as the center of cheese production in the state, but there’s more to this south-central Wisconsin city than cheese. Visitors may have passed the large Swiss chalet in town a number of times without realizing they are passing a part of history. The Swiss Turner Hall of Monroe is on both the State and National Historic Registers. This building dates to 1938, but the first Turner Hall was erected here back in 1868. For more than 150 years, this hall has served as a center of community for the large number of folks with Swiss heritage that settled and flourished in Green County. Today, the hall is home to a truly delicious restaurant that serves up old-world specialties, an eight-lane bowling alley, and a grand hall that hosts a number of private and community events. They don’t make community gathering places like this anymore.
Please note, Turner Hall is temporarily closed.
