— Architect: Thomas Bast · Contractor: T. H. Johnson —

Originally designed as the Palace of Agriculture, this 80' by 160' building was labeled the Horticulture Building by the Premium List of 1906, but the Agriculture Building by Program Books from 1915, 1918, and 1920. Postcards from 1908 through 1912 call this building the Liberal Arts Building.
In the 1920s, it became the Education Building, displaying the work of Missouri's schools.
The shaped parapet and arched windows on the towers add to the Missionesque flavor of the building.
It is one of the three oldest buildings on the fairgrounds.
