Nineteenth-century History

1885 Photographs of the Campbell House in St. Louis

I have to admit that I have an unhealthy obsession with 19th century architecture and houses in general which means that whenever I come across photos taken in the 19th century of a house from that period, I get quite excited. I’m not entirely sure how I managed to stumble upon this website, but I ended up on the website for the Campbell House in St. Louis, Missouri.

I’ve posted 4 of the photographs taken in 1885 from the website here. You can find the rest of the collection of 60 photographs on the Campbell House website.
