Glenn House: Worth a visit, one of downtown's jewels

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Six members of the Glenn family were on hand earlier this month for special tours of the historic Glenn House.

It was a special day, and also a reminder of this special jewel in Cape Girardeau's downtown landscape.

The Glenn House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, built in 1883 for David A. Glenn, an influential figure in the city's history. It was renovated in 1900, and preserved by the Historical Association of Greater Cape Girardeau.

The Glenn House has been preserved in time with each room decorated as it was at the turn of the 20th century.

The Glenn House is a wonderful old building that every one should visit at least once. It's a snapshot into history, and it's open to the public now through October on weekends from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The cost is $5 for adults and $2 for children.

For more information, see the Glenn House website, www.glennhouse.org.
