The Chatol also known as The Chance Guest House is a historic home located at Centralia, Missouri. It was built in 1940, and is a large, two-story residence, "U"-shaped in plan, with a basement. It is reflective of the Streamline Moderne and International Style architecture. The house measures approximately 136 feet by 92 feet. It was constructed in a swampy location and has steel footings on a concrete foundation, with a spring system employed in the walls. It features strips of louvered windows in the sun room and the wood and metal framed casement windows that traverse the walls and most of the squared and curved corners of the house.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
