Botanical Grove Happy Hour & Speaker Series With Michael Allen
Wednesday, June 18 from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. (talk at 6:00 p.m.)
1624 Tower Grove Avenue
Come grab a (free) cold Urban Chestnut brew and a delicious crepe from Holy Crepe Food Truck and listen to acclaimed Architectural Historian Michael Allen discuss the history of the subdivisions around the Missouri Botanical Garden — including Gurney Court. Allen will discuss the Missouri Botanical Garden’s twentieth century effort to develop lands once held for garden expansion into a unique middle-class streetcar suburb that maintains its lovely character to this day.
