  • Casa del Herrero Hotels
    Casa del Herrero, Spanish for “House of the Blacksmith,” was designed by famed architect George Washington Smith and completed in 1925. Created for St. Louis industrialist George Fox Steedman as a family retreat, the Casa remained exclusively in his family’s hands until 1993 when his descendants transferred the property to create a nonprofit organization with a mission to preserve, protect, and share this amazing historic resource with the public. Landscape architecture was provided by Lockwood de Forest, Francis T. Underhill, and Ralph K. Stevens. Antiquarians, Arthur Byne and Mildred Stapley, helped outfit the Casa alongside the well-known Hearst Castle. The home’s original collection of 16th to 18th art, tapestries, silver, furniture, rugs, library, blacksmith workshop, and more remain fully intact for tours. Tours are by reservation only on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Admission for the 90-minute, docent-led tours is $50 per person. All tours are booked online.
