POINT OF INTEREST "D"
Continue east to Market Street. Turn left (north). In the middle of the block is the Pommer- Gentner House. Continue north. Cross W. 1st Street. Stop at the Pilot House at the Missouri River Bridge.
 

This is the future site of the Pilot House, which was dismantled and removed from across the street to make way for the new Missouri River Bridge. (The new bridge will be constructed to the west of the current bridge and will feature wider traffic lanes, a pedestrian/bicycle lane, overlooks, and period lighting.) The Pilot House is a memorial to the river men who contributed to making Hermann the busiest port on the Missouri River. Many families were supported by men who worked on steamboats, constructed boats, and handled river freight. (For a complete history of the Port of Hermann, visit the River Room in the Hermann Museum at the German School.)
