Thread: Lafayette Square, St Louis

  1. #1

    Lafayette Square, St Louis

    Lafayette Square was St Louis's first public park, started in 1838. In the late 1800s it was the place to live in St Louis. After a long decline, restoration started in the 1970s and now the neighborhood is a jewel again. The beautifully-restored homes here are really special. Here are a few.

    These homes are in a 'park'? Can a person go in them, or??

    I love old building, and more so the construction of them. Seeing these so close to me is great(typically to see really old buildings a person has to go towards the northeast). Very cool stuff!

    They are private homes surrounding a public park. You can't just walk in. They do have tours biannually:

    Thanks. Here in St Louis there aren't a lot of really good landscapes to shoot but we have abundant great architecture.

    Okay...I was thinking maybe a 'park' with tours or some other kind of way to see the insides too.

    Attention to details on the restoring, and the colors are very vibrant. Photographers delight....thanks for sharing.
