MHM Library and Research Center
The building at 225 South Skinker Boulevard was built for the United Hebrew Congregation (UHC) in the mid-1920s. The Byzantine style building was designed by the St. Louis architectural firm Maritz and Young with Gabriel Ferrand, and it was the home of the UHC from its dedication on January 21, 1927 until the summer of 1989.

The Missouri History Museum purchased the building in the early 1990s and re-fitted it for use as a library and research center. The museum's vast collection of books, photographs, manuscripts, and museum artifacts are stored there, and the former UHC sanctuary is now a reading room for library and archives materials. The reading room is open to the public from noon to 5:00 Tuesday through Friday and 10:00 to 5:00 on Saturdays.
