I think Shenandoah Elementary is one of my favorite school building in the city of St. Louis. It’s an interesting mix of Spanish architectural revival elements, but what really blows me away is the amazing front entrance.
In what could best be described as a Baroque Revival portal, the entrance features two beautiful Solmonic Columns, twisting their way up to the architrave of the door, and its curving, broken pediment. It’s a rarity in St. Louis, and is truly special. It seems the idiotic threat of demolition has passed, and the school is now safe, for the time being.
