Deutschheim Pommer-Gentner House

The 1840 Pommer-Genter House is one of the oldest buildings in Hermann.

Weihnachtsfest at Deutschheim

Built in 1840 for Caroline Pommer, the Pommer-Gentner home’s neoclassical design and Beidermeier furnishings reflect the life of a prosperous merchant family of the 1830s and 1840s.

The Pommer and Gentner families were among the founders of Hermann. The Pommers had been makers of fine piano-fortes in Philadelphia, one of which is now displayed at the Smithsonian.

Behind the house is a period four-square demonstration garden and small half-timbered barn with 19th-century tools.

 

Deutschheim Strehly HouseThe 1842 Carl Strehly house is a rare treasure, with all the original furnishings and household items of a family of moderate means.

The original three-room house was constructed in 1842. For the next 27 years it was enlarged to accommodate a growing family and its businesses. The lower level housed a printing business that provided the community with two German-language newspapers.

In the late 1850s, a winery with arched brick wine cellar was added. One-hundred-year-old grapevines still climb an arbor running the length of the backyard.
