Notable Houses, The Ville

The Ville 064

This house above, an Italianate wood-frame house is surely one of the oldest buildings in the Ville.  Below, this fascinating two-family building surely rose along with the Ville’s changing fortunes as the center of African-American life in St. Louis.

Again, another incredibly old house, one that could easily fit into St. Louis Place or Lafayette Square, sits in relatively good condition.

Another older Italianate house:

This house is strange; it is brick on the first floor, and wood up above.

I wonder who owned this majestic house below; was it Annie Malone, possibly?  It looks to be from around the 1920′s, and is an interesting Tudor Revival style.

    In 1920, Annie Malone lived with her husband Aaron at 4300 St. Ferdinand Street according to the census records
