Check Out The First Home Owned By A Woman in Missouri
Known as the Glenn House located in Cape Girardeau, Missouri this house has so much history to it besides Queen Anne style.
Knowing that this house was owned by a woman in the late 1800's, to me anyway, is that cool part about this house. Just looking at this house with all its original woodwork and furnishings you know that there is so much pride put in when building and maintain this house. This house (back in the day) was considered a mega mansion and we get to see what it was like for people to live in these types of grand homes. This house in particular comes with so much history.
The Glenn house, which was built in 1883, was a wedding present to Lula Dean from her father who married David Glenn. The style of the house is known as a Queen Anne look, which refers to English architecture that was popular in the late 1800's. This type of style was names after Queen Anne who reigned from 1702 to 1714.
Take a tour of the house in the video below and take a look at one of the most beautiful houses in Missouri.
I am putting this house on my bucket list to visit. Much like the Magic Chef house, this house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 and is open for tours. Tour are available on Saturday and Sunday's only to see the house for yourself.
