He designed churches, hotels, public buildings, schools, town and country houses, the St. Louis waterworks and water tower, commercial and institutional buildings, the Missouri Governor's Mansion, but is best known for the work he did for St. Louisan Henry Shaw. He designed Shaw's country house and mausoleum, now both currently in the Missouri Botanical Gardens.
