I really enjoyed this tour. When my family arrived, the tour had already started so we joined in with the group but was given the part we missed at the very end. The home was owned by two different owners so you can tell the different styles of the owners. The tour guide was very informative about the whole house.... More

This beautiful home is not as pristine as some of the other historic homes we have visited, but the tour guide was one of the most knowledgeable of any tour we have taken! The home is rich with history and worth the trip!

We went for a wedding and stayed for the tour. The house and history was amazing. The guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating for all the groups coming through. This is a nice venue for a quaint wedding. The grounds and historic building is the perfect setting!

The tour guide was very informative and accommodating. We arrived after the tour had started and were able to join the tour without any problems. After it had concluded he gave us a tour of the parts that we had missed. The house itself is interesting because it is essentially two houses ~ the original Chatillon house and then the... More

The volunteer staff is wonderful. Arrived while they were setting up for a wedding yet they stopped to lead us through a thorough and entertaining tour of the home. The home spans two architectural styles and several families. It is too bad that the freeway was cut right behind this area as this home and the house next door, the... More

Our tour guide was really good, giving detailed information on the history of the house, including the families that lived there. I liked that part of the house was restored to it's original state before the fancier Victorian addition. There are lots of unique touches throughout the house. I really enjoyed this tour.

The architecture of home is OK. It has some interesting artifacts from the family inside and a nice collection of St Louis world fair in attic. The docent (sorry I forgot his name) was amazing and packed a lot of history & knowledge of the family and area into the hour tour. Well worth the $8 tour. Also located next... More

We had an excellent tour guide and learned a lot. Cool things to look at and not far from the Lemp Mansion.

The history behind this mansion and all who lived in it was amazing. Each room throughout the mansion appeared very well preserved. The furniture, kids room with the dollhouse in it, the evening gown that is displayed in the hallway on display- the location in the back where the horse buggies ate held-- just too much to list! :-) Great...

My wife & I took the Mansion tour on a mid-summer afternoon, and we now wish we had visited much sooner. Very friendly staff greeted us warmly & genuinely. We toured with a small group of adults, but the I believe the tour would be equally appreciated by children of grade school age & above. The house was built in... More
