"Built of brick, in the Greek Revival style, the DeMenil House is free-standing with three stories and a basement in the main section of the house; the wing consists of only two stories. The house is significant because it stands as a landmark to mid nineteenth century St. Louis. Its distinction is threefold: architectural, historical, and social." [From the nomination to the National Register of Historic Places as prepared by Katherine Neilson Kurtz, research associate, and Gerhardt Kramer, FAIA, executive director, June, 1977.]
