Ohio Avenue Between Miami and Winnebago Streets, Gravois Park

Update: This post and its title was updated in February 2020 to reflect its location in the Gravois Park neighborhood, and its correct street.

These beautiful houses face the back up to the old Concordia Theological Seminary in Gravois Park. Perhaps a professor lived in the house at one time?

The house above looks like a house that might be in the West End, or Cabanne Place; it shows that this neighborhood was still thriving even as the city pushed to the west.

Update: This is the old Bakers’ Union Hall.

I love this Art Deco style building on the corner; I don’t know anything about it, but it’s a nice treat and a break from the rhythm of red brick so common in the neighborhood.

    Beautiful homes…Ohio/Texas, right?This is Gravois Park, no?

    Good question, Matt.Depending on your interpretation of Benton Park West and Gravois Park's borders, it can be in either. If you go for the vertical, rectangular alignment of Benton Park West, that is where it is. If you go with the other source, which says that Gravois Park is a horizontal, rectangular neighborhood, and not a square one centered around the park, then it is in Gravois Park.

    good afternoon chris, the art deco building pictured above was the bakers union building. I may be wrong but that’s what is think it was at one time.
