The date on the plaque is 1856..the date provided by local historical society is 1877..and, current Real Estate people say 1842...many of these old homes in small towns, the date, and court records get fuzzy.
This house is also a Bed & Breakfast place in the downtown Hermann area.

"127 East 5th Street, George Schneider Residence, c. 1877, addition c. 1910, Contributing (Survey #134)
Outbuilding: Alley house, Contributing; Privy, Contributing, Garage, Non-contributing
Constructed in two phases, the earliest portion of this 1/12 story brick Missouri German house dates from c. 1875. The oldest part is three bays wide and has a cut stone foundation. In c. 1910, a two bay addition was added to the east. The addition was built on a concrete foundation, but otherwise matches the original portion of the house. The façade is now five bays wide with a central entrance topped by a transom. The door has three panels with a large etched and colored glass light. Window openings have segmental arched openings, stone sills, and 2/2 wood windows. Hipped roof dormers are centered over the 2nd and fourth bays. The house has three outbuildings. A large 1 1/2 story frame building, possibly a secondary residence, has a side gable roof , 6/6 wood windows and a replacement porch across the façade. It is covered in corrugated metal and wood clapboard siding. Behind this building is a two-door brick privy with shed roof. A more recently constructed gable front garage is located at the alley." ~ NRHP Nomination Form
