The Magic Chef Mansion was built by Charles Stockstrom, who came to St. Louis from Germany in 1880. He made a fortune in the Quick Meal Stove Company, later renamed Magic Chef. The company was the largest stove maker in the world at one time. The mansion was completed in 1908 and modeled after the Schloss castle in Germany. The mansion is open for tours.
