Edmund R. Norris House

Why is this house abandoned?! This beautiful house sits just to the west of Saint Louis University on West Pine Boulevard across Vandeventer, and is a wonderful survivor. I would love to know the story behind the steel beams that created either an outdoor patio for a former restaurant or maybe a loading dock.

It’s a beautiful example of the Romanesque Revival transitioning into the early Queen Anne style. I couldn’t find out much about Edmund R. Norris, unfortunately. The porch is not original.
