THE GLORY OF THE
MAGIC CHEF MANSION

In the 1930's, half of America's home stoves
were made by Magic Chef Stove Company,
in St. Louis, Missouri.

The founder of Magic Chef, Charles Stockstrom,
transformed part of his vast fortune
into an elegant mansion, on Russell Boulevard.

The residence, designed by Ernst Janssen,
and completed in 1908,
remained in the family until 1990.

The home has been restored to its
turn-of-the-century elegance, including all
the original lighting fixtures and period furnishings.

This magnificent private residence is available
for private parties, weddings and receptions
(servants not included.)
