Tour Benton's home and studio followed by a visit to the Nelson Art Gallery to see some of his paintings. $5 donation requested. RSVP here (preferably) or by emailing me at

The time shown is tentative. More details to follow.

During the sign-in process all participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver. If you would like to read the Liability Waiver before you choose to participate in an outing, please go to:


Since we have a large group, please arrive a little early so everyone has a chance to sign the waiver on the clipboard. Also on the clipboard will be an envelop for donations to Sierra Club which will help fund a photo exhibit of Missouri's eight wilderness areas for the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. We will probably split into two groups for tours at the Benton Historic Site and the Nelson Art Gallery. The tour guides have asked that we start on time so please gather about 10 minutes before each tour. Parking is on the street however you can use the garage at the Nelson. It looks like the weather will be in the 50's so it should be a great day!


Since our group is over 15, the cost will be $3 per person for our 1 hour tour of the THB home and studio. The tour starts at 10:00 AM and please be forewarned that there is only one restroom available. For lunch, I have made a reservation at the Rozelle Court (great cafe at the Nelson) for those that want to get something to eat or drink before our Nelson Art Gallery tour at 1 PM.
