Hermann Farm & Museum is a beautiful representation of an early agricultural German settlement. Its open-air museum approach invites guests to experience a glimpse into what the early pioneer industry of Hermann must have been like. Among the history houses, livestock and model vineyards, the Hermann Farm demonstrates something of what life would have been like for Charles Manwaring and George Husmann, two men who pioneered Hermann’s first vineyards and wine industry. Two of Hermann Hill’s Cottages are named after Manwaring and Husmann.
