8025 Blackberry Ave., University City, MO, 63130 / Cake artist: Megan Rieke

 

The Green Center was started by Aubrey Green in the 1930s, as he built his home on the property in 1932. After his death in 1995, most of the property was purchased by the city of University City and was named Kaufman Park in honor of its former mayor. The property once had an orchard. (Even at the time, it was unusual!) The house is rumored to be haunted. Today, it is currently being used as a place for environmental and garden enthusiasts, as well as a laboratory.
