Matterhorn Replica

In response to a desire to improve the image of Switzerland, a master plan was developed, calling for the beautification and expansion of the Swiss Garden, including the construction of a replica, almost fifty feet high of Switzerland’s most famous mountain — the Matterhorn. Other improvements consisted of a new Swiss Chalet with granary, a rustic bridge, rock gardens, a flag pole, a variety of shrubs, trees, evergreens, plants and flowers, flanked on one side with a young forest of aspens and one the other side by a grove of pines.
