Chatillon-DeMenil Mansion

3352 DeMenil Place
Saint Louis, MO 63101


Our Mission:

Our Mission is to preserve the house of the Chatillon and DeMenil families and to serve as a resource for historic preservation in St. Louis.

The Chatillon DeMenil House is a magnificent example of the late Greek Revival style in St. Louis, but its significance is more than architectural. The house embodies the stories of the families who lived here, including members of the founding families of St. Louis and Carondelet, a nationally known Western trailblazer, the family of an Oglala leader, the first chain drugstore operator in St. Louis, and a literary scholar who was a director of the 1904 World's Fair. We also tell the story of the caves underneath the property, the highway system that almost destroyed the house, and the preservation efforts that saved it. We are open for tours four days a week and private events are available on the grounds, in our Carriage House and in the Mansion itself.
