Inscription.  Louis Obert was born in Germany in 1845 and emigrated to St. Louis in 1866. Obert purchased the Arsenal Brewery in 1876. Located across the street and slightly south, the brewery produced the flagship brand Tannhauser. A contemporary of Adolphus Busch, Obert shared his Arsenal brewery logo (an eagle emerging from an "A") with Busch. The symbol is still popular today. The mansion is built in the Victorian Second Empire style with a mansard roof and ornate trim.
