Next time in St. Louis
Enjoy an afternoon or evening
at the Bissell Mansion
Restaurant & Murder Mystery
Located at 4426 Randall Place near the Grand exit off of I-70, the once historic home of Capt. Lewis Bissell, a commissioned officer under President Thomas Jefferson, was built in the mid-1820s. Originally from Connecticut, Bissell served with distinction in the War of 1812 and after being promoted to captain was given command of Fort Clark, now Peoria, IL. He acquired 1500 acres known by riverboat pilots as Bissell's Point and built the mansion on a hill overlooking the property. The Bissell Mansion was rescued from the wrecking ball in the late 1950s and is now host to St. Louis' original participatory comedy/mystery/dinner theatre. A four-course dinner is served between the acts of the show with the murderer and suspects randomly selected from the audience.
