Most of the furnishings are original to the home, including some bought at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Its 25 rooms hold a lever-operated bowling alley, a mosaic tile fireplace, antique telephones and Edison chandeliers, light bulbs and phonographs. A museum of patented medicine also is in the mansion. Guided tours are available.
