The National Trust for Historic Preservation has declared that May is Historic Preservation Month, and this year’s theme is “Celebrating America’s Treasures.” St. Louis is ready to celebrate, and here is one of this month’s first events!
Modern STL is proud to team with the Trustees of Ladue Estates to bring you the first ever Open House and Walking Tour of the first-ever Missouri mid-century modern neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places! Four houses will be open for your enjoyment. At 11am, noon and 1 pm, take a guided tour of the homes on West Ladue Estates Drive presented by residents Lea Ann Baker (the heroine who spent 3 years completing the National Register application) and architect David Connally.
