EXHIBIT: Great City, Great Architecture: The Steedman Library and St. Louis

St. Louis Central Library
1301 Olive Street, St. Louis, MO 63103

In 1928, the Steedman Architectural Library was gifted to St. Louis Public Library by St. Louis business man, George Fox Steedman. Mr. Steedman’s purpose for this generous gift was “to develop better architectural work in St. Louis” by providing access to “books of an inspirational character to students and practitioners of architecture” and its allied arts.
Great City, Great Architecture: The Steedman Library and St. Louis, is a unique exhibit which showcases items held within this collection and highlights ties to architectural gems in St. Louis, including Louis Sullivan's Wainwright Tomb and the Kraus House by Frank Lloyd Wright.


The FLWHEP has several opportunities for you to become involved. Contact us at 314 822 8359 or if you would like to learn more about volunteering.

The FLWHEP relies on a dedicated group of volunteer docents to provide tours of the house. Docents receive training on the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright and the design, construction, and restoration of the Kraus House. If you enjoy learning about history and architecture and sharing your knowledge with others, this is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for you.

Special Events
Volunteers can help with the FLWHEP annual fundraising event as well as periodic educational programs for the St. Louis community.

Grounds and Landscaping
The FLWHEP has occasional needs for assistance in maintaining the 10.5-acre property in partnership with the St. Louis County Parks Department. Possible projects include weeding, watering, and removal of honeysuckle
