George I. Barnett
Birth: 1815
Death: 1898

Born in England, Barnett became one of the best-known architects in the United States. After his 3-year apprenticeship with a builder in London, Barnett moved to St. Louis in 1839. He designed churches, hotels, public buildings, schools, town & country houses, the St. Louis waterworks & water tower, commercial & institutional buildings, the Missouri Governor's Mansion, but is best known for the work he did for St. Louisan Henry Shaw. He designed Shaw's country house & mausoleum, now both currently in the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Other architects who worked with Barnett include Henry Isaacs, Icarian Piquenard, Charles May, William Kirchner, Isaac Taylor & George Mills. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
