Historic Locust Grove invites you to join us for a Public Meeting to learn about our future construction plans. We’ve worked with architects DeLeon Primmer, landscape architects Environs, Metro Parks, and other consultants on plans for an open air pavilion, new pathways, parking, and entrance, and upgrades to the interior of the Visitor Center, all with the goal of improving visitor access and experience, and providing spaces for new programs and activities. While Locust Grove’s historic house remains at the center of the story and mission of the site, the changes will focus on the other elements of the 55-acre site.
The plans have received preliminary approval from Metro’s historic preservation office, and we look forward to a September 2020 start date for construction.
View the plans, ask questions, and be part of the experience of re-creating Locust Grove as a historic site for the 21st century.
This event is free and open to the public; please RSVP to email@example.com. This meeting will take place in the Audubon Room in the Visitors' Center at Locust Grove.
