Downing House

The Downing House Museum would not exist today with the gen­er­ous sup­port of community-minded indi­vid­u­als. Dona­tions sup­port the Museum’s mis­sion of his­toric preser­va­tion and edu­ca­tion and have allowed the Downing House Museum to endure as one of Missouri’s his­toric prop­erty muse­ums
