A Greek Revival-style mansion now open to the public, the Chatillon-DeMenil house dates to 1849, when the first portion was built for Henri Chatillon, a hunter and guide with Francis Parkman's Oregon Trail expedition. Sold to the DeMenil family a few years later, it was soon enlarged and transformed into the current Greek Revival form. Threatened with demolition in the 1950s to make way for the construction of I-55, the house was saved by local preservationists and then completely restored. Today, the DeMenil remains an oasis of calm and elegance.
