The Beauty of Dutchtown, 58: Oregon Avenue Between Osage and Keokuk Streets

Looking west down Osage Street as we cross over, we notice that multi-family houses tend to dominate on east-west streets in Dutchtown.

Heading north, we look at the west side of the street, where dark brown brick predominates, meaning the buildings are from the 1910s and 20s.

There’s a large vacant lot and some in-fill.

Then there’s this old Greek Revival survivor, dating to the 1860s or early 70s. It is abandoned, unfortunately.

Looking at the east side street as we head south, we see houses that show the influence of the Romanesque Revival.

But most of the building are much newer than the 1800s.
