The Studio Inn at St. Albans is a European-style bed and breakfast inn and event venue rich with history and tradition. In 1804, St. Albans was a stopping point for the famed explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, and also served as a rest stop for paddle wheelers. Many of the settlers were German farmers that found St. Albans reminiscent of the countryside they had left behind. In the early 1900s, Oscar Johnson, one of the co-founders of International Shoe Company, purchased most of the land around St. Albans. The Studio, or The Chateau as it was known, was the summer home of Irene Walter Johnson. The renowned architect, Theodore Link, who designed St. Louis Union Station, was commissioned to build the Johnson mansion that was worthy to reside in the rolling, majestic hills of St. Albans.
