German immigrants founded the city of Hermann, Missouri in the 1830’s. It was an area of vineyards and wineries until Prohibition shut down the industry. In the 1960’s it began to be revived by the wine industry. Today there are seven wineries and tourism that mainly support the community to provide one-third of the states wine. Edward Hermann is one who bought land and is considered by many the founder of the town. The goals of the colony were to preserve German culture built around farming, commerce, and industry. However the name came from a Germanic leader Hermann der Cherusker who defeated the Romans in a battle in the year 9. Today there has been formed a historic district made up of approximately 150 historic buildings arranged with quaint views and charms of the earlier time.
