Meet across from Crown Candy Kitchen, 1401 St. Louis Avenue
St. Louis Place is one of the city’s most time-altered neighborhoods — but that makes it a place of uncanny possibilities. Platted in 1850, built up by 1900, and ravaged by federal and local clearance policies in the late 20th century, the neighborhood survives with resilience. Come see historic architecture and activist agriculture — architecture and horticulture — people and place.
The tour led by architectural historian Michael R. Allen starts at Crown Candy Kitchen in Old North and moves from there. The former Pruitt-Igoe site is included.
Presented by Preservation Research Office. $5 per person (cash please).
