Event description
This tour features one of the most historically significant neighborhoods in St. Louis, and the amazing architecture found within it.

About this Event

Lafayette Square is one of the most historically significant places in St. Louis. Home to the oldest house in the city, the first park West of the Mississippi, along with Civil War generals, influential 19th century politicians, and wealthy business owners, Lafayette Square has an impressive background with equally impressive architecture. Lafayette Square also has an amazing comeback story, narrowly avoiding demolition and eventually being restored to its former glory. On this tour we cover more than just the mansions around the park, and go back into the streets that lead away from the park to discuss the history behind some of the houses tucked away in the neighborhood. The tour also goes into Benton Place, one of the oldest surviving private streets in America.
