The Shaw neighborhood began as a clearing the French called Prairie des Noyers. Henry Shaw bought land in 1840 to the north and west of Chambers and there he built his country home, Tower Grove House. He also began planning and installing his magnificent garden, now known as the Missouri Botanical Garden. Shaw contains a variety of housing, from the beautiful grand homes on Flora and Shaw Place to spacious multifamily dwellings. Many churches, schools and businesses also call Shaw home.
