Kosciusko Avenue Between Cahokia and Winnebago Streets, Marine Villa

Update: See the interior of the house in 1960 herein historic photos.

It is not surprising that many of the Greek Revival houses, perhaps owned by employees of the nearby Marine Hospital, possessed balconies that looked out over the Mississippi River from the bluffs above the banks below.

Later Second Empire houses also filled in the vacant lots in the years after the Civil War.

I’ve looked at the east side of this street before, which possesses at least one unique gambrel-roofed flounder house. This one block has a plethora of interesting houses.
