Arnold Escher von der Linth >>
The necessary works were begun in 1807 under the supervision of Hans Conrad Escher of Zurich (1767-1823).
The first portion of the undertaking was completed in 1811, and received the name of the "Escher canal," the river being thus diverted; into the Walensee.
To commemorate the efforts of Escher, the Swiss diet in 1823 (after his death) decided that his male descendants should bear the name of "Escher von der Linth."
