Welcome to the Campbell House Museum

CampbellHouseRobertCampbellBuilt in 1851, the first house in the ele­gant Lucas Place neigh­bor­hood, the Camp­bell House was the home of renowned fur trader and entre­pre­neur Robert Camp­bell and his fam­ily from 1854 until 1938.

#DrinkupTweetupSTL with Distilled History

Fri­day, Sep­tem­ber 26, 2014 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.
(swing by after work)
at the Camp­bell House Museum
Down­town STL at the cor­ner of 15th and Locust

We had so much fun at least year’s #drinkuptwee­t­up­STL that we though we’d give it another whirl, but big­ger and bet­ter. Once again we’ll have deli­cious food cour­tesy of Maya Cafe in Maple­wood and beer cour­tesy of home­town brewer Schlafly. Check out what else is going on below…

We are very excited to wel­come St. Louis sen­sa­tion Typhoon Jack­son to the CHM stage (that’s our show biz term for the east side of the gar­den). They’ve been seen all over the place through­out the past year, serv­ing as the house band for the Gate­way Arch’s Sum­mer Flicks and Food­ies event and mak­ing appear­ances on the STL air­waves. We think their “back­wood, down home, funky on the side” sound is going be be a great addi­tion to our gar­den oasis in down­town St. Louis and the per­fect back­drop to expe­ri­ence CHM and some dis­tilled history!
