Campbell House Museum provides a glimpse of the Gilded Age in St. Louis. Built in 1851 in the elegant Lucas Place neighborhood, Campbell House now sits in the midst of the city that has built up around it. Still, loyal curators of the multi-level home work hard to maintain its integrity – literal and figurative.
Fur trader and entrepreneur Robert Campbell and his family lived in the home 1854-1938. It’s as if time stood still with dishes on the dining table where the couple entertained the rich and famous. Mr. Campbell’s shaving equipment sits on a table in his bedroom. It feels like a privilege to walk among where this family lived and in the case of several children, died.
