The Pommer-Gentner House features a period-appropriate garden as well as a half-timbered barn displaying tools from the 1830s and 1840s, while the Strehly House boasts a winery with one of the Midwest's only remaining carved wine casks.

The Deutschheim State Historic Site is located in Hermann, Missouri, United States. The 69-acre (0.28 km2) historic site was acquired by the state in 1978. It includes a number of historic houses and other structures, such as a barn and winery, built and used by German immigrants in the middle 19th century. The architecture covers a range of contemporary styles brought from Germany and interpreted in the United States, and the houses have furnishings reflective of mid-century German families in Missouri. The site includes grapes planted in one of the original vineyards and the site of a printing press. The buildings include exhibits of tools and artifacts of the period, giving a picture of daily life. Tours of the grounds are offered for the public.
