The Beauty of Dutchtown, Part 33: Iowa Avenue Between Keokuk and Chippewa Streets

I could have sworn I’ve photographed these beauties on the west side of Iowa Avenue just north of Keokuk Street. They were clearly built at the same time, but each one is unique in their decoration (though probably largely the same on the inside).

Only one, above on the right, is abandoned, which is too bad. It drags down the rest of its partners in the row.

Then the variety returns with those little Modernist in-fills right next to a very old Greek Revival house, that is also sadly abandoned.

The houses are a wide all over the place architecturally and stylistically.

This late Second Empire house is abandoned, on the east side of the block, and has so much potential.
