Jewel Box

Art Deco conservatory in Forest Park

The Jewel Box is a stunning Art Deco conservatory with sparkling glass walls rising majestically 50 feet into the air. The building, which was first opened in 1936 as a spectacular showcase greenhouse of exotic plants, is listed on the National Historic Register.

Located on 17 acres in beautiful Forest Park, near the entrance at Highway 64 and Hampton Avenue, the Jewel Box has recently been restored to its former glory and again features tropical trees, foliage plants, flowers and a fountain. Large flower pots line the interior and baskets of plants hang from the ceiling. The conservatory is surrounded by picturesque rose gardens, lily ponds and towering trees.
