#150: Jewel Box

  • Also known as The St. Louis Floral Conservatory and The City of St. Louis Floral Display House 
  • The idea for such thing was originally conceived in 1913 as an experiment for plants, as a survival of the fittest!
  • Designed by architect William C.E. Becker
  • Built by the city of St. Louis in 1936
  • Special floral shows are hosted there usually during the holidays, as well as Mother's Day, Easter, spring, summer and fall. 
  • The Jewel Box has been a location for many weddings.
  • Renovated in 2002.
