We hope you all had a blessed holiday! We would like to inform you all that while we have decided to cancel our New Year Bell Ringing event, we will still have a couple of volunteers ring the bell at midnight. This will not be open to the public this year. A special thanks to Chuck and Betty Hartbauer for doing this to keep our tradition alive and spread some cheer. So definitely keep your ears open for the bell!

There has also been a proposal that everyone should ring a bell (or some substitute such as hitting a pan) at midnight from their porch or doorway in an effort for everyone to celebrate as a community. We encourage this idea and look forward to hearing you all this weekend!

Have a happy new year!!!

I'm researching the 1899 murder of Walter Koeller by Richard Honeck and Herman Hundhausen. I've found many contemporary news articles about the crime, but I'm curious to know the family background of the three young men. All of them grew up in Hermann and traveled to Dixon, Illinois near Chicago for their education. The Hermann newspapers from the time are all in German. Is there someone at the museum who can assist me? This information is for my true crime history podcast--Fact or Fiction.

Thank you
Check out my short film from our visit to MidWest Wine Country, Hermann MO for our Labor Day Weekend Getaway, feel free to share!
