About WEBSTER GROVES HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Location:

1155 S ROCK HILL RD, WEBSTER GRVS, MO 63119, US

Mission Statement

The beautifully restored Hawken House with its elegant period furnishings is open to the public for tours, and our extensive Archive devoted to local history is maintained just a few feet away in the 30-year old History Barn that also houses the Hearth Room, a community event venue with seating for 120.

Description

The Hawken House was the home of Christopher and Mary Ann Hawken. It was built in 1867 and owned by the Hawken family until 1912. Several other families later called this house their home until it was purchased by the Webster Groves Historical Society and moved to its current location in 1970. Graciously furnished to reflect a post Civil War home of a gentleman farmer, the Hawken House Museum preserves the artifacts and the stories of the Hawken family’s era. Today, the beautifully restored Hawken House with its elegant period furnishings is open to the public for tours, and our extensive Archive devoted to local history is maintained just a few feet away in the 30-year old History Barn that also houses the Hearth Room, a community event venue with seating for 120.
We are seeking volunteers to assist us with programming, events, tours, archive management, landscaping, and Architectural Preservation.
