College Hill, Early Spring 2018

I think College Hill has such a cool variety of housing styles, having developed slowly over decades.

Update: See the house above in February of 2019 (last photo).

I photographed the house above back in 2017. There are not really any long rows of the same houses, but rather a mixture of buildings from wood frame flounders to Cape Cods.

Update: I revisited the house in the winter of 2023.

Just look at that super rare half-flounder below, constructed of a wood frame, and unfortunately abandoned.

Update: See this church in July of 2016 (last photographs), and the winter of 2019 (last photographs), March of 2021 (last three photographs) and spring of 2022.

This church, which is occupied, is interesting, ornamentally, it is Romanesque, but massing-wise, it is Gothic. I see that a lot in St. Louis.

  1. Seeing these pictures make me a little sad. See also beautiful abandoned buildings … And to say that I lived there for 10 years.

      During what period did you live in College Hill?
