2 Days to Go! Sneak Previews & Other Opportunities to Support ONSL

With the Old North House & Community Tour just two days away - we want to offer a few glimpses of some of the sights you’ll see, apart from the Crown Square redevelopment. 

This home at 3240 N. 19th Street is nearing completion and has come a long way in less than a year.

As bad as the front looked in July of 2008, the other side was worse, missing the entire back wall.

The new building at 1318 Hebert and the historic building at its rear also are nearing completion, with an exciting future as a bed & breakfast, gallery, and meeting space.

The owners of both of the above properties graciously have agreed to have their buildings on this year’s tour.  And, as a bonus, you can read more about them on the websites the owners created to chronicle their progress: 

  •  The story of 3240 N. 19th Street can be found at a site with the title of “3 Walls”
  • And you can learn more about the blending of old and new at 1318 Hebert at a site called “1318 Hebert“, with an appropriately descriptive subtitle: “rehabbing a house in the city”

In addition to buying your tickets on the ONSL website, now you can support the work of Old North St. Louis Restoration Group by making an online donation or you can purchase some cool, Old North merchandise, such as t-shirts, mugs, stickers for your car or home.  All you have to do is click on the Buy Stuff  tab along the top of the ONSL.org main page — or you can just click RIGHT HERE.  So, even if you can’t make it to this year’s tour, you can do your part to keep the revitalization moving forward.

But, if you do come out on Saturday, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., you’ll get a chance to see first-hand many of the cool things going on in the neighborhood, including the great spaces shown above.  So, as long as you’re sitting at your computer, why don’t you just click on over to the Buy Stuff page and purchase your tickets now for the low, advance ticket price of $10 instead of paying $12 per ticket on the day of the tour.  (By the way, have we mentioned lately that all tour-goers get free ice cream from Crown Candy Kitchen?)

WHAT'S NEW IN OLD NORTH

Welcome to the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group's blog. What's New in Old North chronicles the dramatic transformation under way in the neighborhood of Old North St. Louis. As a neighborhood just north of Downtown St. Louis, Old North is becoming a dynamic urban village of new and historic homes, a landmark eating establishment, beautiful community gardens, and a diverse, friendly, and engaged community.
