***** 5 star rating! What an amazing tour of the last standing home from the original Lucas Place. My husband and I were really taken by the character of Robert Campbell and what forward thinker he was. The home is lovely and we enjoyed every room. The foundation has done a painstaking job of restoring the house to ORIGINAL! Wow! Maureen, Sam And Andy made it special! Maureen is so knowledgable and FUN! My husband and I enjoyed the gift shop too and plan to go back soon! We made a day of the tour and the went to Crown Candy Kitchen for lunch and then to Bellfountaine Cemetery to tour where Robert and Virginia and thier children are buried as well as many other notable St Louisans!

Very interesting and more than worth the price. We had a very intimate small tour with a very knowledgable guide. The home is extremely well restored and preserved with original everything! A hidden gem in St. Louis!

Great experience - Dennis was the greatest tour guide - very knowledgeable and committed to the Museum. Took my 92 year old mother and thought I was going to be bored - turned out that I had a great time.

On the website the tour length is 45-60 minutes. The actual tour took over an hour and 45 minutes and we ended up having to leave before the tour was over.

From Our Editors

When it was first established in the early 1850s, the neighborhood known as Lucas Place was a piece of farmland on its way to becoming the first clearly defined wealthy suburb of St. Louis. Much has changed since then, as the city has expanded around the neighborhood and many of the elegant buildings have made way for more modern incarnations. One building, however, has largely stayed the same.

Built in 1851, the Campbell House was the home of renowned fur trader and businessman Robert Camp­bell and his family. The Campbells would continue to occupy the house until 1938, acquiring furniture, paintings, clothing, and other period artifacts to fill the house over the years. The family also took a detailed set of interior photographs in the 1880s that were only rediscovered in the late 20th century. These photographs would prove to be of great historical importance, as they formed the basis for a massive renovation project that would result in the opening of the Campbell House Museum.

Today, the Campbell House Museum attracts visitors from St. Louis and beyond, many of whom come to get a glimpse of what the city was like before modern conveniences such as electricity. The house retains many of the family's original possessions, as well as library books and state archives that offer a further glimpse into 19th-century American life.
