Anton Schmitt House

  • Also Known As: Monsanto-Schmitt House

  • Travel Genus: Sight
  • Sight Category: Building

The Anton Schmitt House (the Monsanto-Schmitt House), 7727 S Broadway, St Louis is located at the southeast corner of St Louis Park, in the Carondelet neighborhood of St Louis, Missouri. The one and one-half story house, built in 1859, is constructed of quarry-faced, coursed limestone with a limestone foundation and a side gabled roof with paired brick chimneys at each end. The building has identical mirror-imaged halves. In a last effort to save the building, it was moved from its original site; the building's historic context had been thoroughly eradicated, and the house itself faced demolition from an adjacent chemical plant's proposed expansion. Prior to its move, the house had undergone a few alterations; most of the window glazing had been lost; the original rear porch was replaced by a treated-wood structure; and a large, gabled wall dormer was installed on the rear facade. - NRHP, January 1992
