about the Old Carriage Shelter

The Old Carriage Shelter was designed in 1873 by Henry Thiele, and is situated a short distance south of Main Drive, near the Music Stand. It was originally embellished with hitching posts and surrounded by a wooden fence in the "Chinese Chippendale" style utilized near both the Arsenal Street and Magnolia Street entrances to Tower Grove Park.   The fence and hitching posts were eventually removed.
