THE CROWN JEWEL
OF FOREST PARK

Visitors to St. Louis
are always pleasantly surprised
to discover this Art Deco gem
in the center of Forest Park.

The Jewel Box, built in 1936,
is a cantilevered house of glass,
with towering 50-foot glass walls,
managed by the St. Louis Floral Conservatory. 

A grand greenhouse indeed, 
but now in demand as a wedding venue,
especially in the Spring,
with its grand tulip beds.
(Now in full bloom.)

Worth a visit.
($1 admission, at the door.)
