It’s been eight years since the arson that struck St. Louis Place along Hebert Street. There are still so many beautiful houses left, it’s a shame to see them crumble away. There seems to be some work on the house above, happily.
The undergrowth is starting to take back over again this spring.
I will be offering the rescheduled tours of St. Louis Place this Saturday, May 28, 2016 at 1:00 and 3:00 PM. The neighborhood has been in the news lately as eminent domain threatens the area with demolition for the new NGA site. But when examined closer, the neighborhood becomes a rich tapestry of people, history and architecture. Come explore St. Louis Place and see what made this such a special neighborhood for two hundred years. We will visit the mansions of St. Louis Avenue, the old Falstaff Brewery, St. Liborius and other homes and businesses that have called the area home for decades, or even centuries.
We will meet at the sitting area across the street from Crown Candy Kitchen prior to both tours, in front of the beautiful Jesse Owens mural.
