Midtown Survivors, Early Spring 2018

I checked up on those historic houses on Samuel Shepard Drive, the rare survivors of the upper middle class residential district built right after the Civil War. They are owned by the State of Missouri. The house below is stable, after suffering some roof damage.

The service wing of the SaLees Kennard House is gone, but the rest of the house looks stable. As I’ve said in the past, in response to some criticism of wanting to save this house, we need to save places that historically complex, not just historically easy.
