The Frederick Stegmaier Mansion


Today's post is about a great bed and breakfast, The Frederick Stegmaier Mansion, where I will be attending a Downton Abbey tea this weekend!! This was my post from February of 2010 when they were featured in Victorian Homes Magazine. I am excited to obtain some original photos of my own this coming Saturday!! 

The mansion was built in 1870 by a local architect Missoura B. Houpt, as his private residence. Frederick Stegmaier, president of the Stegmaier Brewery, purchased the mansion in 1906 where it remained in the Stegmaier family until the late 1940's. In 2001, Joseph Matteo acquired the mansion and meticulously restored it to its former opulence. The Victorian Homes magazine recently had a very nice article on the mansion which I thought I would share. It is truely a most beautiful piece of victorian magic !!!
       It is quite a big deal to have a 15 page spread in this magazine !!
