General Daniel Bissell came to the St. Louis area when he was appointed to be the military commander of the Upper Louisiana Territory. His post was at Fort Belle Fontaine. After leaving the military at the end of the War of 1812, he built a two story brick home in the Federal style of architecture which was finally completed in 1819. The home has a distinct history in that it was occupied by the Bissell family for almost 150 years! In the early 1960's the Bissell family gave it to St. Louis County with stipulations that it would always be a museum. Today the General Daniel Bissell House can be seen during special events such as costumed reenactments, fairs, lectures and seminars or private tours by appointment.
