I am so glad I found this thread, I only hope that the person who started it is still interested! I'm currently researching this family because my husband and I reside in the home they built and lived in during their time in Kansas City, MO. I'm not yet sure how long they stayed here, but it was only for a handful of years.

I don't have any images of the home when it was new (construction began in 1885, completed in 1886), but I have one from 1940. It's in serious disrepair in this pic, but you can see easily see how lovely it once was.

I also found a Victorian chalk board- the small kind that young school children once used- buried under dust and debris in the attic. I'm not sure who it belonged to, but I like to think it was one of the Allen children.

I have a page on Ancestry.com for them, and I assume you might as well...? Please respond and we'll connect there.

How are you, how was the tour?

Hi again! The holiday homes tour went really well. After we invested so much work into getting ours ready for it, and then spending so much time taking the holiday decorations down afterwards, we decided it was too much work to do again. It's been a couple of years now, and the fine memories of it all have managed to eclipse the hard-work memories...so of course we've agreed to participate again in the future. :o)

But back to the thread topic- do you know of any photos on line of the Allen family's Clifton Heights home? I'd love to see it if one exists, so share the link if such a thing is out there!

The diary of Nathan D. Allen contains material on life in Webster Groves, with accounts of the 1849 cholera epidemic and the Civil War in St. Louis, and mentions meeting Abraham
