                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1987

                  About the owner: We are Rachel Presley and Karen Karabell, two sisters who own a property management company in the City of St. Louis. The former office and caretaker's apartment in The Fremont has been completely rehabbed and renamed the 'Jessie Benton Suite.' Benton was the daughter of U.S. Senator Thomas Hart Benton and the wife of John C. Fremont, who in 1856 was the first Republican Party candidate for U.S. President (he lost that year to James Buchanan) and commander of the Union army's Western Department during the first year of the Civil War. Although Fremont and 'General Jessie' were highly controversial figures both in St. Louis and in Washington, the building was named in their honor when it was built in 1928.

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Louis:
                  If you need to be in the heart of St. Louis, this is an ideal location.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  It is easy to get from here to anywhere in St. Louis. You don't need a car to stay at the Jessie Benton Suite, which is in one of St. Louis' best walking neighborhoods. Public transit is right outside the front door. At the same time, the 'Jessie' is close to Interstate 64, providing easy access to all of the city.
