“Constructed in 1856, the Dietrich House is a German built log farmhouse which retains much of its original look and feel although its “dog trot” area has been enclosed and a frame addition added. An old log barn also survives on the site, and both buildings are in excellent condition. John Dietrich, the probable builder of the house, bought the land in 1856. Besides farming, the Dietrich’s also operated a grocery store at the corner of Manchester and Meramec Station roads.” Information from here
