Welcome to Swiss Village
Swiss Village is a multi-family community located in the heart of the Saint Joseph’s neighborhood. This property is made up of 23 free-standing rental homes centered around the old Swiss Village Lodge which we converted into 18 one and two-bedroom apartment lofts. With the goal of keeping a “neighborhood feel,” each home is equipped with a front and back porch, garage, additional parking space, and access to our turf dog park on our pet-friendly property.
Formally know as Swiss Park and Swiss Hall, this site and building has strong connections to the Swiss immigrant community that lived in Germantown and the St. Josephs neighborhood.
Located on Lynn Street between Shelby and Preston streets, the park was created in 1925 by the Gruetli Helvetia Society, a Swiss association formed in 1850. A hall was erected soon after as a meeting place for the society, and the park became a popular summer gathering place for the Germantown community — for dances, bingo games, church socials, cookouts and celebrations.
In 1993, the society sold the property to the Fraternal Order of Police Deputy Sheriff’s Lodge 25, where it remained until being sold to Underhill Associates in 2019.
