About

This special German Heritage Exhibit has been contributed by Stober and several German natives who live in Maysville and Mason County area. In 1934, Stöber Antriebstechnik was founded in Germany by brothers Paul and Wilhelm Stöber. Since 1991, Maysville has been home to Stober Drives, Inc., a gear box assembly plant. The company will offer authentic items from Germany to be displayed in the exhibit.

The exhibit includes a selection from John T. Hoffman’s personal collection of over 105 German beer steins. The collection features steins of all sizes, ranging from 5 liters to ½ liter, including highly collectible “Mettlach” steins, dating back to 1910 and before. Christel Poe will contributed authentic Bavarian outfits, such as dirndls, as well as an assortment of hand-painted German stoneware, such as pots, shingles, and old-fashioned milk cans. Also on display is a selection of knit clothes with intricate Bavarian patterns and braids, hand-made by Karin Thiel.
