General Daniel Bissell House, St. Louis, MO Photos

The General Daniel Bissell House was built (1812-20) (10225 Bellefontaine Road) by the American military commander of the Upper Louisiana Territory. He arrived in 1809 to find Fort Belle Fontaine near the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers north of St. Louis poorly located and maintained. In 1811 he received permission to rebuild the fort on higher ground and then set about building his own home on better land to the south. It is now a museum house with furnishings of the era. The fort he built was abandoned in 1826 when the army moved to Jefferson Barracks on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River south of St. Louis.
