Log Cabin College Connections

Today is even busier for me. We have a large school group visiting our museum today. Exactly six years ago, the same school, St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Des Peres, Missouri visited our museum, and we wrote about it on this blog. I am reposting that story today. We will be hosting several Lutheran school groups in the coming weeks, and we love to tell our story.

The Lutheran Heritage Center & Museum played host today to a group of students from St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Des Peres, Missouri.  It was a unique opportunity for us to inform these students that there are plenty of connections between the Log Cabin College here in Perry County and their school in the St. Louis area.

The first pastor of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church was Rev. J.A.F.W. Mueller, who was the first graduate of Concordia Seminary in Altenburg.  Rev. Mueller, often referred to as Alphabet Mueller, was also a member of the first class of the Log Cabin College in 1839.

The third pastor of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church was Rev. Theodore Miessler.  Rev. Miessler was married to one of the daughters of Herman Buenger, a druggist in St. Louis, who was also a member of that first class of the Log Cabin College.
