Old North History

The Missouri Historical Society’s project “History Happened Here” now has a section on Old North St. Louis. The site is meant to connect history with the place that it occurred. ONSL is one of two cultural areas currently on the website, and many of the neighborhood’s historic sites are listed. Each site has pictures and a description. There is also a feature available to share your own memories.

Annual Neighborhood Meeting

About 100 area residents came out for the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group annual meeting and potluck dinner Monday night. Those in attendance were updated on the progress of the neighborhood over the last year, and were given a preview of the exciting projects and plans for the current year including the redevelopment of the 14th street mall and various community events scheduled for this summer. Five members were elected to terms on the ONSLRG Board of Directors, including 3 returning members (Dave Eisenbraun, Ella Owens, and Rev. Richard Taylor) and 2 new members (Courtney McDermott and Natasha Ramey). A good time was had by all.
