The Anheuser family bought the estate in 1916 and used it as a summerhouse until 1945 when Mabel-Ruth and her husband, the late Frederick Straub Anheuser moved there. The Anheuser collection includes family heirlooms, antiques, portraits, and a family library. Accenting the collection are Mrs. Anheuser's Westward Ho Crystal collection and a pair of 1904 hand-carved World's Fair beds. The grounds feature splendid views of the river and Bald Eagles are often spotted
soaring above the river bluffs.
