The museum was once home to famed western guide and hunter Henri Chatillon. In 1863 the DeMenil family completed a magnificent addition which turned the Chatillons’ modest home into a Greek Revival mansion. Dr. Nicolas N. DeMenil and his wife Emilie Sophie Chouteau, of St. Louis’ founding French family, lived here with their son Alexander. The extended family occupied the house until Alexander’s death in 1928. Weddings have been part of our history at DeMenil since the creation of the Chatillon DeMenil House Foundation in 1964, and we are proud to keep up that tradition with the re-opening of The Carriage House at DeMenil.
Our newly renovated carriage house and charming brick garden patio is available for up to 150 seated guests.
