    The Brewmaster's Castle

    This is called the "House that Beer Built" and "America's Most Intact Late-Victorian House/Museum". This is the house of a German-American beer baron and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The guy who lived here was one of the city's most successful brewer's and was also the oldest one - he was 102 at the time of his death.

    His house is now run as a museum. There are hand-carved fireplace mantles, gilt furniture, bronze statues, an onyx and marble staircase, ceilings painted by artists who worked at the White HOuse, a musician's balcony, a bierstube, Victorian gardents, and more.

    There are tours on Wednesdays, THursdays, and Fridays at 11:30 and at 1:00 and on Saturdays at 11:30, 1:00, and 2:30. The cost is $5. On "First Fridays", they have open houses and music on the first friday of each month from April to October from 5:30-8:30. Cost is $10.
