Built in 1851, the first house in the elegant neighborhood Lucas Place, the Campbell House was the home of renowned fur trader and entrepreneur Robert Campbell and his family from 1854 until 1938. The museum contains hundreds of original Campbell possessions including furniture, paintings, clothing, letters, carriages and a unique set of interior photographs taken in the mid-1880s.

  • One of the best Victorian era homes I have ever visited. The furniture, decor and woodwork is 90% original. Family tragedy lies behind how this home survived when all around it were decimated by progress. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and passed along family history that made the home come alive.
  • Amazing fun! Fascinating history. Was totally surprised by how interesting and lovely the house was. A great way to learn more about the history of St Louis, the Campbell family, and historical furniture/fabrics/cooking/life/etiquette, you name it. It's a must do on your list of St Louis tourist stops. Tour took about an hour but didn't feel long at all because it was so interesting. They have chairs for individuals unable to stand that long. Does not have elevators though (historical home after all) and you will have to climb a manageable amount of stairs (only a floor at a time though).
