Tower Grove Park Lecture Series

The third installment of the Tower Grove Park Lecture Series.

Dr. Bob Moore
Historian with the National Park Service

What was St. Louis like when Henry Shaw arrived in the city in 1819?  If you accompanied Shaw as he walked around the town and showed him the sights, what would you have seen together?  In this presentation historian Bob Moore will talk in depth about the physical makeup of the vanished world of early American St. Louis, and the historical evidence that tells us what it was like.


Join members of Tower Grove Park and the general public for a free Lecture Series. Guest speakers discuss the history of parks, gardening, and Tower Grove Park.

The Lecture Series takes place at the Stupp Center, located in the Park, at the corner of Arsenal and S. Grand.
