Deutsch Country Days - Marthasville, Missouri

Deutsch Country Days
18055 state highway O
Luxenhaus Farm
Marthasville, Missouri

Begun as a benefit house tour, Deutch Country Days has turned into a unique and authentic recreation of early German life in Missouri. The hills outside of Marthasville literally come alive with the sights and sounds of the 1800's as early German immigrant's functional lifestyle is authentically recreated. Juried artisans, in period attire, demonstrate natural dyeing, German fractur, sad ironing, koppolei, wood turning, hide tanning, candle dipping, and rug braiding -- just some of the eighty primitive skills exhibiting the early German life and trades.
