Old Survivor, Tower Grove East, Damaged

Update: Demolished in early October 2017.

I wrote about the historic houses from the 1870s in Tower Grove East a while back in St. Louis Magazine, and this old guy is extremely historic, predating most of the houses in the neighborhood. It looks like it was damaged by high winds in the last week, probably on July 13, 2017. Such a shame.

    I’ve always loved this house and wonder why no rehabber hasn’t taken this on considering the increasing investment in around it. Do you think it can be saved?

      Yes, just a block to the north RISE and Lutheran Development have fixed a house contemporary to this one that was in far worse shape.
