  • Amazing history and beautiful antiques. If those walls could talk! However, the owner did talk and it was like stepping into the past. Two of the best hours I've spent in a long time. So worth it. Abe...  more »
  • This is the best home tour we've taken. Watch your time, as this tour easily exceeds two hours, as owner and solo resident Terry Teigens takes you into every room (even his), from the third floor to t...  more »
  • Built in 1905 and furnished with items from the 1904 St Louis Worlds Fair. The owner gives the tours of the home and has personal knowledge of the history of the home. We spent over two hours touring ...  more »

  • Terry, tbe man who lives there and does the tour is Awesome. Walking in the front door, is stepping back in timr to 1906!! Kids wouldn't like it as the tour lasted 2.5 hrs. This is definitely an adult venue.
  • Really interesting. I have been wanting to see inside for years! The old man was nice but annoying and can't keep a conversation going unless it is him talking. When you try to ask questions or talk about anything else then his mind is off on something else and he will talk to someone else walking by. The history here is very cool. The power went out while we were there and didn't come back on until we were almost done with the tour. I will say that you should do this reasonably priced tour at least once but you'll have to put up with his singing and rambling on and on in his different ways.
  • The mansion it's self is amazing! A lot of great history! A 3 hour tour with no running A/C on the first two floors was uncalled for! Since the modern digital wall climate controller reading was 81° on those floors! I would have loved to learn more about the mansion and it's furnishings but our guide was more interested in telling us about the sisters that sold the mansion to him.... Which was great at first but after the first hour my patience started to fray! Too Hot and Too Long!
  • Large 1900 home with period furnishings, has a very informative guided tour.
  • This house is amazing!!! Have seen things in it that my husband & I haven't seen in older homes before. Met the current owner & he lives there as well. He bought the home from the daughters who grew up in it. It's well worth seeing.
