The House on the Hill

What I love about St. Louis architecture is how every building tells a story. Take this little guy, on the north side of Fox Park. Why is it sitting so weirdly up high? Well, most likely it was because this houses was built before the streets were graded, so this house was built on the original topography. Fox Park developed late because of all the sink holes (which rear their ugly heads from time to time).

    I think that window above the door is odd…..

      I highly doubt that is the original door and “transom” arrangement. It looks like a late twentieth-century remuddling.
