The Story Behind Missouri’s Most Haunted House Will Give You Nightmares

The Lemp Mansion is a well-known historical house in Benton Park in St. Louis. It was the home of brewer baron William J. Lemp Sr., and his family. William J. Lemp Brewing Co. dominated the St. Louis beer market for many years with its Falstaff beer brand. But the family suffered many tragedies over the years, and four members of the Lemp family died by committing suicide. The mansion is said to be haunted by members of the Lemp family.
