City Museum Founder Bob Cassilly's House For Sale [PHOTOS]

Bob Cassilly is a St. Louis legend and now you can own a little piece of what he left behind when he died in 2011.

As the founder and visionary behind the City Museum, Bob Cassilly gave St. Louis with a treasure that we’ll appreciate for years. He was also the artist behind the sculptures of turtles at Turtle Park in Dogtown, the apple chairs in Webster Groves and more.

He brought a sense of whimsy to every one of his projects, including his home on Riverview Drive, just a two minute drive north of the site that would’ve become Cementland if it weren’t for Cassilly’s sad passing.

The property is just over an acre large and includes a 1,492 square foot open-concept main house and three bedrooms with views of the Mississippi River.

Described as a “river retreat,” this secluded spot also includes a gazebo, a meditation shack and a pool. The stone guest house was built by Cassilly and includes custom granite countertops and a wood-burning stove.

For more information on this property, contact Adam’s Auctions & Real Estate Services at 618-234-8751 or visit their website. Interested parties can view the house on Sunday, August 28th from 2:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. and you can bid online to buy the property, which is being sold through an online-only auction.
