Hermannhof's History & Haunts

February 7-9, 2020

Join us for Hermannhof's first ever Ghost Hunting Weekend! Monster Paranormal out of St. Louis will be leading a 2-day event with investigations at the Hermannhof Winery and the Inn at Hermannhof. The weekend includes two dinner presentations, the two investigations, a history tour of Hermannhof, and other special activities in the old Hermannhof Wine Cellars.

The Inn was built in the 1870s, and the winery was built in a couple decades prior to that.  The history these buildings have seen is unbelievable.  If only walls could talk...  perhaps they can!  

Friday's Presentation will consist of how paranormal investigators investigate, the tools they use, some evidence that Monster Paranormal has collected, proper etiquette when investigating, and more!  Saturday's presentation will provide more evidence and some local history collected by Monster Paranormal.

Special activities will take place in the Inn's Fireplace Room on Saturday afternoon, and a walking tour telling some of the history that makes Hermannhof so unique will help our guests ask pointed questions to our friends on the other side.

$100/person/day to participate.  Choose Friday, Saturday, or both days!
