Built 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. 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.

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!
