Update: I revisited the stretch of Meramec in December of 2022.
While Meramec Street in Dutchtown is famous for St. Anthony of Padua and its commercial strip, it becomes more residential as it heads east towards South Broadway. Above, there is one of William B. Ittner’s amazing designs, Meramec Elementary from 1910. You can see the back of the school in this later post.
The remainder of the street is filled with classic Dutchtown houses, middle class but loaded with individual style that made each one unique.
