Tower Grove House, the country home of 19th-century St. Louis merchant Henry Shaw, was built in 1849 on the grounds of his estate, which by 1857 he would open to the public as the Missouri Botanical Garden. The house itself, an Italianate villa with a marvelous spice garden and maze in the rear, has the type of lavish Victorian decor you might expect from such a wealthy, successful businessman. Though the house is one of the garden's most interesting features, most visitors pass it by. Also, be sure not to miss Shaw's mausoleum in the ivy-covered grounds in front of the house.
