Long Description:
The Daniel Catlin House at 51 Westmoreland Place was built in 1915 for Daniel and Justina Catlin. The house was designed in a Renaissance style by St. Louis architect James P. Jamieson.

Daniel Catlin, took over his fathers tobacco business which was established in 1840 and grew it to be one of the largest in the country. The company was incorporated in 1876 as Catlin Tobacco Company and he was its president. He remained in that role until 1898 when it merged with the American Tobacco Company. He then continued his private interest in art, real estate holdings and banking interest. He served as a director of State Bank for over 40 years. The Catlin's had moved to this house from Vandeventer Place an earlier area of mansions in St. Louis (no longer existent). Daniel died within a year of moving into this mansion, his widow, Justina, continued to live in the house.
