1. Max Feuerbacher Mansion Marker
Inscription.  Max Feuerbacher was owner of the Green Tree Brewery. When he built this home, he was the first to flank a private residence with stone lions-hence the mansion's nickname "The Lion House." The cupola on the roof provides long-ranging views of "Frenchtown" and the Mississippi River. It is reported the home has an entrance from its cellars to the underlying cave system. A boarding house in the 1940s, this magnificent home is rumored to have had the first burglar alarm system in St. Louis. Some say Mr. Feuerbacher's spirit is still present in the house.
