History

Welcome to The Dr. Hertich House, a heritage hotel and Airbnb located in the heart of Downtown Ste. Genevieve.

“Dr. Charles Hertich, one of Ste. Genevieve’s first full-time physicians, purchased this property in 1850 for the sum of $1,800.00. At that time, only the northern portion of the structure existed. The southern portion was completed at a later date. The building served both as the Hertich family home and as an office for the physician.

The exterior of the building looks much as it did in the 1850s. As you raise the latch on the wooden gate at the northeast corner of the property, your eyes are immediately drawn to the door through which members of the Ste. Genevieve community entered for their appointments with Dr. Hertich. Although the door is no longer functional, it bears the etched H that now serves as the logo for Dr. Hertich’s House. As you step up and to your left you encounter the long covered front porch. The porch, with a warmth and charm of its own, affords one of the best views of Main Street.”

The Hertich House was recently purchased by another Dr. H, Dr. Sandra Hoffmann - who is also a practicing physician here in Ste. Genevieve.
