The outdoor patio attached to the Hearth Room is specifically included in the rental of the Hearth Room at Historic Hawken House, however, many renters choose to utilize the public park area in between the Hearth Room and the raised-bed Herb Garden, which we refer to as the Courtyard.
The construction on the rear porch of the Historic Hawken House is FINALLY beginning in April of 2023!
It is our hope that the construction will have little impact on your plans as the project should hopefully not take long to complete and the construction will not affect events in the evenings or weekends.
Renters should likely make plans to avoid the Herb Garden area for their events.
The City of Webster Groves parks manager has assured the Historical Society that they plan to regularly mow the lawn and courtyard areas, however, this is 100% out of our control as the Historic Site is in a publicly maintained park and we are at the whim of their available crews. Our volunteers and those of the Webster Groves Herb Society do their very best to maintain the immediate historical site grounds with the resources and weather limitations we have. Your grace and patience with this situation are greatly appreciated.
