Notes
Survey number HABS MO-1135-F
National Register Number: 71001065
Significance: The Cleveland Avenue Gatehouse is the last building specified by Henry Shaw to complete his plan for the Missouri Botanical Garden. It is a excellent example of a 19th century picturesque cottage combining Gothic Revival details with the extensive use if shingles popular at the end of the 19th century. Well integrated with the surrounding structure in the Garden, the gatehouse remains the best available staff residence within the Garden.
