Eugene Miltenberger House

I’d been trying to figure out a way to make this incredibly historic house part of a larger post, but I couldn’t, so I present it to you now. It’s the Eugene Miltenberger House in Dutchtown, and it was owned by a very important landowner and property developer in the years before the Civil War in South St. Louis. Miltenberger, along with Lewis Bogy and Peter Sarpy, owned a large irregular trapezoid of land on Carondelet Road, later South Broadway. The Bogy, Sarpy and Miltenberger Addition, platted in 1855, consisted of around 125 lots, and over the course of several decades, beginning with Adam Lemp, the Lemp Brewery would buy up every single one of those lots. It’s combined into one super parcel today.
