Weird and Wonderful Tower Grove South: Phillips Avenue East of Oak Hill Avenue

Phillips Avenue is another street that alludes to the early roots of Tower Grove South, with many wood frame houses from the Nineteenth Century, mixed in with early Twentieth Century suburban style homes.

I have always been intrigued by the small house below, sitting all the way back on the lot. I have to believe that there are some old coal miners’ houses still surviving around here. The one below is certainly one of the oldest in the area.

But otherwise, we see houses I would expect to see in tracts in Dutchtown.

But right next to a house on the left from the 1930s or 40s we see on from perhaps the 1870s, and surely built when the area was rural.

Then we see a whole row of those Dutchtown bungalows.
