Ohio Avenue Between Chippewa and Winnebago Streets, Gravois Park

Detail of Plate 31, Compton and Dry’s Pictorial St. Louis, 1876, Library of Congress.

Crossing over Chippewa, we enter Gravois Park, which is really just northern Dutchtown. There are many older houses in the Greek Revival style, including this corner building.

Interestingly, there is this Second Empire house built along the street and alley. There are some more nice houses, spanning the decades around the year 1900.

But like I said, many very old buildings from right after the Civil War.

But also some mid-Twentieth Century in-fill houses below.

These are some extremely old Italianate houses; note how simple they are in their front façade elevations.

These last houses come before a corner storefront I’ve looked at before in this post from January of 2021.

Turning around at Winnebago and heading south, we see more multi-family buildings, such as the one below.

After these Second Empire houses, there’s a whole row of Greek Revival cottages, from the first generation of construction in the area.

This house is intriguing, with its wood frame side; it seems to be under renovation.
