College Hill, Part 1

College Hill is north of the Grand Water Tower, and south of O’Fallon Park. It is an area shrouded in mystery, and cloaked in a severe amount of desolation. I don’t think I saw maybe six people as we drove through this neighborhood two weeks ago.

The area really is hilly, hence the name College Hill; there is a deep valley in between the Grand Blvd ridge and the high lands around the Park. The area is largely abandoned down in between the two hills.

Update: I photographed the house below in the winter of 2019 (last photo).

Unique houses abound, including this wonderful buff brick house with a turret…

Update: See the McMansion in the winter of 2019.

…and this incongruous brown McMansion built only a few years ago.
