  • After hearing about Hermann for years from my friends, I decided to stop by and visit with my mom on our way back from a weekend trip to STL. This is about 20 miles south from I-70 down a lovely one lane road through beautiful rolling hills. The settlers were very intentional in their location as this was close to the river but still close enough to other civilized towns to be able to participate in commerce. The Deutschheim State Historic Site features extremely well preserved buildings dating from several centuries ago. Craig was very knowledgeable on the area and even suggested when fun festivals/holiday celebrations were going on so we could plan a future trip back. As you can see by the photos, it has that European historic charm you'd see in places like Philadelphia or Boston but all within the midwest. Definitely worth the stop. Gift shop includes post cards, books, stamps for holiday cookies (resin, soap, etc if you wish) and you can get stamp cancellations here, too!
  • A lovely grouping of preserved buildings from Hermann's early days. They represent the German heritage of the area, and proudly display German architectural styles, interior decor, and more. The gardens are attractive, and the surrounding neighborhood is pleasant. Make time for the guided tour, and be prepared for lots of historic information!
