As one of the most his­tor­i­cally-sig­nif­i­cant 19th-Cen­tury build­ings in St. Louis, the Museum not only pre­serves the Camp­bells’ house, but also their col­lec­tion of orig­i­nal fur­ni­ture, fix­tures, paint­ings, objects and thou­sands of pages of fam­ily doc­u­ments. Included in these doc­u­ments is a unique album of 60 pho­tographs of the inte­rior of the house taken in about 1885. 

In 2005, CHM com­pleted a metic­u­lous five-year restora­tion that returned the build­ing to its opu­lent 1880s appear­ance, when the house was one of the cen­ters of St. Louis society.

The Camp­bell House was doc­u­mented as part of the His­toric Amer­i­can Build­ings Sur­vey between 1936 and 1941, des­ig­nated a City of St. Louis Land­mark in 1946, listed on the National Reg­is­ter of His­toric Places in 1977, and became a National Trust for His­toric Preser­va­tion Save America’s Trea­sures project in 2000.
