Since opening on February 6, 1943, the Campbell House Museum has served the greater St. Louis area as one of America’s premier historic property museums. The Museum not only preserves the Campbells’ house, but also their collection of original furniture, fixtures, paintings, objects, and thousands of pages of family documents. Included in these documents is a unique album of 60 photographs of the interior of the house taken in about 1885. In 2005, CHM completed a meticulous five-year restoration that returned the building to its opulent 1880s appearance, when the house was one of the centers of St. Louis society. As one of the most historically significant 19th Century building in St.Louis, we work hard to preserve our National Register listed buildings and important collection of original furnishings, family possessions, photographs and archival material to serve a center for education and community outreach programming
