“One of St Louis' best kept secrets: Outstanding antique & '04 worlds fair collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2009

Explore the gardens then enjoy a tasty selection from the eclectic lunch menu offered in the adjacent carriage house cafe before touring the mansion from basement to attic. Curator Ken McNeil provides an enthusiastic, detailed and fascinating history of the mansion, its occupants and the surrounding area. The mansion is completely furnished with many original pieces and related period items, circa 1847-1904. Henri Chatillon was immortilized as the wilderness guide in Francis Parkman's The Oregon Trail, a quide for westward bound settlers. http://www.demenil.org/history_people_henri.htm Learn how the mansion played an important part in local St Louis lore and legacy of the LacCledes, the DeMenils and Madame Chouteau.
