Always More History to Discover in ONSL

Day 14 of “45 Days in Old North”

One of the fascinating aspects of a neighborhood that has been around as long as Old North St. Louis is that there is always something new to discover about its past. Plans for an ONSL History Trail grew out of a 3-year partnership with the University of Missouri-St. Louis and will some day include actual markers at the sites of interest throughout the neighborhod. In the meantime, we have history trail brochures that can be picked up at the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group office (2800 N. 14th Street at St. Louis Avenue) - and you can click on the link above and in the right column of this page to view the trail and details of each site.

Another tool for documenting ONSL’s rich history is the History Happened Here project of the Missouri Historical Society. Another discovery on the MHS website is a photograph from 1908 of a long-gone public pool, curiously enough called the Mullanphy pool because of its location on Mullanphy Street between 10th & 11th. Enjoy this peak into the vibrant life of the neighborhood, about a century ago: Mullanphy Pool.
