The old Tradesmen Barn is filled with displays of businesses that would existed
in the mid-1800s in Hermann, Missouri.
The upper floor is the Broom Makers shop with a collection of broom making equipment originally from Arrow Rock, MO.
The Dietzel Tin Smith shop and tools are downstairs and are all original to Hermann and were used by A.E Dietzel in the early 1900s. Dietzel wore many hats, that of Sheriff, Tinner and Grocer.
The Woodwrights Shop is on the lower level and tools of the trade all displayed in this shop include templates for making wagon wheels as well as levels, planes, hammers, drills, and chisels.
The ghostly people you see in the exhibits are our signature “flatties.” Using old photos of living historians who worked here at Hermann Farm we made stand up figures. You’ll see them inside many of our Hermann Farm displays.
