Tower Grove Park Lecture Series

The second installment of the Tower Grove Park Lecture Series rescheduled from March 3.

Adrian Ayres Fisher
Descendant of the Gurney Family

Henry Shaw brought James Gurney to St. Louis from Kew Gardens at the time of Tower Grove Park’s construction. Three generations of the Gurney Family then led the Park for 109 years. James Gurney’s great-great-granddaughter will give an informal talk about the family and their generations of service to Tower Grove Park.
