Join the staff of the Campbell House Museum for a walking tour of the site of the once-grand Lucas Place neighborhood, one of St. Louis’ first private places and an enclave of Gilded Age wealth and 19th century elegance. Spanning four city blocks in Downtown St. Louis, tour participants will walk a street once lined with expansive homes, comparing and contrasting the Lucas Place of 1875 with the Locust Street business district of the 21st century.

Dr. Ruth Bohan, Professor of Art History at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, will examine the range and use of domestic textiles, principally in the Campbell House Parlor, to better understand and appreciate their contribution to the complex chain of associations responsible for elevating the mundane and utilitarian into the realm of the symbolic. Held in the CHM Library, admission to this special event is free but space is limited. Contact the Museum today for your reservation.
