1. The Dr. John H. Stumberg Home Marker
Inscription.  Built in 1869 by Dr. John H. Stumberg upon his return from service as a surgeon with the Union troops. The contractor was Dr. Stumberg's father who had built the Evangelical Lutheran Church in St. Charles and the All Saints Church in St. Peters.

Dr. Stumberg was at one time Superintendant of Public Schools and served for twenty-five years on the Lindenwood Board of Trustees.

Dr. Stumberg married Helen Linnemann and they had four daughters and four sons. Upon the death of his wife, the house was left in Trust for the benefit of their unmarried daughters. The last of the daughters to live in the house died in 1972.

The house stood vacant until it was purchased by the R-G-H Real Estate partnership in 1977. The home was placed on the National Register of Historic places on July 17, 1978 by the Department of the Interior.
