Long Description:
The small town of Hohenwald was originally founded by Swiss settlers who called it New Switzerland. Eventually the German workers who came to work in the nearby iron and phosphate mines grew the tiny community into a town they named for the heavily forested ridges surrounding the area. Hohenwald, "High Forrest", became my home after marriage. Even though I live out west now this is home.

These coordinates we're found on Switzerland Rd in the Swiss Colony just west of downtown. Only cows to watch me.
Who took the photo of your converted name?: Not listed

Visit Instructions:

A photo showing the area would be a great addition to the waymark gallery.
