Nestled away in Frohna, Missouri, the Saxon Lutheran Memorial is dedicated to preserving and proclaiming the life and faith of the Saxon Lutheran immigrants. Featuring authentic log cabin homes, buildings and furnishings from the early 1800s, the Saxon Lutheran Memorial enjoys a fifty year history of sharing with the public the pioneer culture and historic Lutheran faith of the original Perry County settlers.
The thirty acre site features the log-cabin frame house building that was the home of brothers Wilhelm and Christian Adolf Bergt. Now restored, the Bergt cabin is furnished with household utensils and furniture from the 19th century.
Other buildings around the Bergt cabin include a log barn, two log buildings (thought to have served as slave quarters for settlers prior to the arrival of the Saxons), a wooden granary, the SLM Visitors' Center, and an outdoor museum for farm equipment.
Group tours are required to make reservations in advance. The Saxon Lutheran Memorial is closed December through February.
