The Swiss Society of New Orleans is one of the oldest Swiss organizations in the United States. It was founded in 1855 as the Swiss Benevolent Society and adopted its current name in 1859. Originally, it helped the needy among its members with medical care, including hospitalization, medication, and burial plots. Its mission included encouraging Swiss imigration to the United States, organizing excursions back to Switzerland, and arranging social events for the New Orleans Swiss community.
