Campbell House Museum to Begin Million Dollar Addition

By on April 22, 2019

From NextSTL:  The historic Campbell House Museum at 1508 Locust Street downtown applied for a $1,000,000 building permit last week. Two separate additions at the back of the property will add a new street-level accessible entrance and lobby, an elevator and stair tower, added classroom space and a new and larger Museum Store.

Built in 1851, the Campbell House was the first house on the first private street in St. Louis. Lucas Place–today’s Locust—stretched between 13th and 16th Street and included paved stone sidewalks and private security. The street’s last house was built in 1871. The Campbell house is the last surviving property from Lucas Place.
