Flounder Alley House, St. Louis Place

The elderly woman who lived here has been on the news over the years, talking about how losing her house to eminent domain would be devastating to her life.  She also spoke about the corn fields that Paul McKee let someone grow back in 2013, altering the landscape and destroying her sense of safety as the corn grew to six to seven feet tall. I remember being on a tour of Washington University students of the area, and several students laughing at the elderly woman’s concerns.

Please join me for my lecture about the Green Book and St. Louis at the Missouri History Museum, February 16 at 7:00 PM.


  1. Is it safe to assume this house will be destroyed for the NGA? A shame if it is.
