Downtown East St. Louis Historic District
East St. Louis, Illinois
East St. Louis is working on an asset-based strategy for downtown revitalization, with historic buildings at the center. The National Park Service listed the district in September 2014, enabling the use of historic tax credits. The hard work only has begun, but the prospects are inspiring.
