The story of the Lemp Mansion.
The Lemp Mansion may be a great
place to visit for trick or treating when they use the mansion for a spooky
haunted house, however, the mansion is known for being one of the most haunted
buildings in all of St. Louis.
What you may not know as you enter the spook house
on the Halloween is that there are true ghosts hanging around this mansion. The
history of this mansion tells it all.
The Lemp family owned and operated the Lemp
Brewery, which was as large as ten city blocks and was of course the largest
brewery in St. Louis until the time of prohibition. No one knows exactly what
caused the demise of the Lemp Brewery it is one of those unknown mysteries.
The very first strange occurrence in the Lemp
family was the death of the Frederick Lemp, the favorite son and heir of
William. He died mysteriously in 1901. William grieved for three years before he
committed suicide in the bedroom with a gun to his head. Over the course of
time, there have been four suicides in the Lemp Mansion.
Strange happenings have plagued visitors, guests,
and staff members throughout history. One such event is that of a painter that
began to feel someone was watching him while he was working on restoring the
ceilings alone in the mansion. Out of nowhere someone called his name and that
was it, he left in a flash without giving himself time to clean his equipment.
Another tale is one of a waitress, who arrived
early and noticed a customer sitting alone at one of the tables. She began to
walk up to him to see if she could help him but when she got within a few feet,
If you have the nerve, you can visit the Lemp Mansion since today it is famous

and breakfast. Just do not be too surprised if you find yourself dining with a
ghost or awaken in the middle of the night by unwanted visitors.
