Hanley Park & House

Hanley Park is a one 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. 

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.

Andy Hahn, Director of the Campbell House Museum, and Sarah Umlauf, from the Historic Hanley House, will come together to present, The 19th Century Table.  The Campbell House Museum and the Historic Hanley House will once again come together and explore a shared topic with unique experiences for the Campbell family in the city of St. Louis versus the Hanley family on their farmstead in St. Louis County.  Past lectures have looked at how the families celebrated the holiday season and how the families dealt with illness.  The next presentation will look at each family’s special relationship with food.  The presentation will highlight recipes and look at dining experiences and how they differed in both households. This is a unique opportunity to sample recipes from both families. 

This program is free and open to the public.
