Park Rules

Hanley Park & House

Hanley Park is a 1 acre space encompassing trees, the Hanley Pavilion and the Historic Hanley House.

Martin Franklin Hanley built the Historic Hanley House in 1855.  The farmstead is the oldest structure in the City of Clayton and it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The restored home is today an historic house museum filled with original family furnishings, artifacts, and letters that together represent an honest portrayal of 19th century Missouri life. 

Please explore our website to learn a little about our history and find out how you can experience the museum through a guided tour or special event.

Our Mission & Objectives:

The mission of the Historic Hanley House is to preserve and interpret the site and its collection to enhance the effectiveness of the museum as an educational and cultural resource for the community, with these objectives:

  1. Assure that the farmhouse which Martin Franklin Hanley built shall be preserved as a faithful evocation of Clayton's origins, for the wonderment and education of generations to come.
  2. Bring the history of the Martin Franklin Hanley House into the modern consciousness as a cultural asset particularly valuable for our urban environment.
  3. Encourage broad participation by the community through the establishment of a self-supporting foundation.
  4. Partner with educational institutions to create curriculum involving the Martin Franklin Hanley House for Kindergarten - Graduate School.
