Built in 1849, Tower Grove House is a restored residence that guides visitors back into the past.  Originally the home of Henry Shaw, the founder of the famed Missouri Botanical Garden, visitors can “learn more about the people who made the Garden grow.”  After serving as a residence, the house also served as a classroom for the Shaw’s School of Gardeners, and in 1953 opened as a museum.  Exhibits provide information about expeditions, such as the Harriman Expedition which explored unique flora in Kodiak Alaska.  Past exhibits have showcased different garden types and taught visitors how to conduct their own experiments.  Tower Grove House is open seasonally from April through October and admission is included with tickets to the Garden.
