Harrison Hill was originally the house and winery of William Poeschel. A brother of Michael Poeschel, owner of Stone Hill Winery, he built this two-and-a-half story, L-shaped house in 1869, the year that the main building of Stone Hill Winery was built. It is possible that these buildings are the work of the same architect. -- Historic American Buildings Survey

William Poeschel House
Posted November 14, 2012, by Angela Poeschel (iangelarodriguez [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Myself and my family Poeschel family should have some say in what happens to something that belongs to 1 of our ancestors. I am the daughter of Kathryn Poeschel, Who is the daughter of love Carl Poeschel. MOST of our Poeschel family Live there in Hermann, MO. I don't see how it's fair that none of our family has a say in anything.
