Honey Shuck is the home of Champ Clark, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1911 to 1919. Champ Clark represented the 9th Congressional District of Missouri for 26 years. Champ Clark was the leading candidate for the Democratic Nomination for President in 1912 and led the voting at the Baltimore Convention for many of the ballots including a majority of the delegates for nine ballots.
Honey Shuck was purchased by the Clark family in 1898 and Mrs. Clark lived there into the 1930s. Champ passed away in 1921 on the second-last day of his 13th term in Congress. The house has been restored to the appearance when the Clarks lived there. There are many articles of furniture that belonged to the Clark family and many items that have been donated that are from the time period.
