Schiller Hermann House
This home was originally built as the residence for the son of Binger Hermann, Schiller Hermann, a grandson of Dr. Henry Hermann who settled at Broadbent
in 1859 with the Baltimore Colony. Binger was the Coquille Valley's first school teacher,
was the owner of the first store in what would later become Myrtle Point, and was also an
elected legislator. Binger served as a representative to the Oregon legislature and as
a representative to the U.S. Congress. He is the only representative ever elected to
that office from Coos County.
