Not Just for Men: Let’s go back in time!

Thursday, April 26 | carpool at church 10:40am for 11:10am tour

Not Just for Men will be visiting The Hawken House located in Webster Groves, 1155 South Rock Hill Road

 

The Historic Christopher Hawken House is the oldest house in suburban Webster Groves. Christopher Miller Hawken built this elegant Federal/Greek Revival style farmhouse in 1857 for his bride, Mary Ann Kinkead Eads. The house originally stood on Big Bend Boulevard along Grant Road, and was moved to Southwest Park in 1970 in order to preserve the structure. It was the first home in Missouri to receive federal funds for restoration, which matched the amount raised by the citizens of Webster Groves and is listed on the National Historic Register. It is now maintained and operated by the Webster Groves Historical Society. The charge for the tour is $4.00 for adults. We will visit a fine dining establishment after touring the house.
