This beautifully restored mansion on the side of a small cliff is worth the drive. For a small entrance fee, you can tour the home w a park guide (as the Home is now owned by the MO State Park System). The home's history and furnishings are interesting. It even contains bees in a paneled area in a bedroom as the original male owner had a fascination with them. There are also caves with cool air under the building and internal ducts from basement were built in the home to potentially draw cool air upstairs in the warm summers.
My husband also enjoyed learning about how the home was one of the original homes in area built with DC electric current.
It's on the site of a state park worth a picnic or short hike.
