This cake commemorates
Since its rescue and renovation by the Pointer family in the 1970s the Lemp Mansion Restaurant & Inn has become a focal point for fine food and local culture. For generations, St. Louisans have come here to enjoy lunch, dinner, weddings, tours, music festivals and Mound City hospitality. The Lemp Mansion's cake was painted by St. Louis native Phil Jarvis, who is a celebrated artist with works that have been displayed internationally. His artistic talent can also be seen in the murals
