Imagine what it would be like to live in Missouri in a log home during the 1800’s. You can give your imagination a boost by visiting the Saxon Lutheran Memorial. The Memorial features four log homes, including a two story cabin and a double cabin. Come step back into time when German settlers were taming Southeast Missouri.

Known across Missouri for craft demonstrations and traditional foods at its annual Fall Festival (the second Saturday in October), the Saxon Lutheran Memorial was designated in 1964 as a historical treasure by the National Park Service and continues to be the destination for school field trips, bus tours and families wanting to re-discover their Lutheran or Perry County roots. Guided tours of the buildings and the courageous settlers who built them are available from SLM’s resident curator. Please call Mrs. Audrey Kennedy to schedule your tour (Tuesdays through Saturdays and Sunday afternoons) at 573-824-5404. Group tours are required to make reservations in advance. (The Saxon Lutheran Memorial is closed December through February.)
