Geography

History

Hütten belonged to the parish of Richterswil until 1702, when it was transferred to the newly-created parish of Schönenberg. In 1752, it was detached from Schönenberg, being serviced by a priest from Zürich once a week, until it was established as an independent church parish in 1824.
