Chapter 4 “Shaping the Land” (die Landschaften)

Caitlin and Arthur discuss the strong “sense of place” in the German Heritage Corridor. We explore what it means to have a “sense of place” and look at examples throughout the state.

Missouri Humanities has spent the last several years forming partnerships and developing programming dedicated to commemorating and interpreting Missouri’s rich German cultural heritage. In 2019, Missouri Humanities partnered with Missouri Life Publishing to create a “book-a-zine” exploring the many facets of “Germanness” in our state: Explore Missouri’s German Heritage. Authored by Dr. W. Arthur Mehrhoff, the publication serves as both a travel guide and coffee table book.
