Vacant Church, Old Olive Street Road in Creve Couer, MO
There’s no sales status change to this abandoned church in St. Louis County, but someone did make the great effort to clear the forest that had grown around it.
This major clean up revealed a lower level entrance I didn’t see before, and I could finally see the cornerstone which confirms that the church was erected in 1964.
See “before” photos and some backstory.
The Many Faces of Webster Groves
Folks have a distinct impression of old, grand homes in Webster Groves, MO., and certainly they exist. But the town is also a patch work of architectural styles… Tiny post-war bungalows with lavender tree swings, or mid-century modern ranch homes by architect Ralph Fournier.
It’s all good.
South St. Louis Spring Morning
Co-mingling of styles on Holly Hills Avenue.
South St. Louis, MO
A former 2-family flat built in 1907 has a kitchen remodeled in the late 1960s. And it remains the same to this day. I love the double layers of architectural history.
Former Mr. Yummy’s
Bates & Ulena, South St. Louis, MO
Now that a dry cleaning service has settled into the old confectionery & grill, they’ve given it a new paint job. Bright, yes, but totally within the spirit of the place (which still has a working payphone out front).
