Kühn House and Harrison Avenue, Florissant

The original central five bay wide Kühn House was built in 1840, an example of a central hall Greek Revival house in Florissant.

As is typical of the style, several wings were added, but kept in a bisymmetrical balance on both sides. As would be expected by the name, it was built by a member of the increasingly large German immigrant population in the area.

There are other interesting historic houses in the immediate area, as well, such as this house below, which is surely quite old.

But I also liked this simple Spanish Revival house, as well.

    I lived in a hstoric Florissant home and you are revealing places I didn’t know! I’m loving your tour of Florissant, valley of the flowers, and history!
