Survey number HABS MO-1920
Building/structure dates: 1875 initial construction
Significance: The Erwin Richterkessing Farm, located in St. Charles County, consists of approximately one dozen buildings and is historically and architecturally significant as a farm complex representative of agrarian German-American culture in rural Missouri. The brick residence is a common example of Missouri-Germanic vernacular architecture while the various ancillary outbuildings demonstrate the agrarian nature of the Richterkessing property. It derives additional importance because of its association with the Ralph Richterkessing Farm to the west, a later example of German-Missouri architecture constructed by Richterkessing relatives. Each farm is important in its own right, but because they share the same architectural tradition, ethnic culture, and German surname, they form an impressive farm complex created and operated by members of a tightly-knit family.
