May Company purchased the Famous Clothing Company in 1892 and acquired the William Barr Dry Goods Company nineteen years later. In 1914, Famous-Barr opened the doors of its iconic downtown location, treating folks across Missouri and Illinois to almost a century of spectacular window displays and noteworthy luncheons.
The event is free and open to the public. There is limited free parking in the lot adjacent to the house and street parking is free on Sundays.
