Our December newsletter didn’t get out in the mail, but the cover story still works as an invitation to the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group’s Open House on Thursday, January 7.  Come on out and join us in celebrating the opening of ONSLRG’s new office, the Crown Village Gallery, the Old North Community History Museum, and the neighborhood information center for current and prospective residents.  We’ve been working out of the new office since November, but the open house will be our first opportunity to show off the space for all of our members, friends, supporters and neighborhood residents.  So, please join us on Thursday, Jan. 7 from 4 to 8 p.m. and help us in spreading the word about this cool, new space at Crown Square in the heart of Old North.

With just one day left in 2009, you can still make a tax-deductible contribution to Old North St. Louis Restoration Group to support the preservation of Mullanphy or any of our other work to revitalize the physical and social dimensions of Old North St. Louis in a manner that respects the community’s historic, cultural and urban character.  To make an online donation, just CLICK HERE.

Trivia Night Benefit for Mullanphy Hostel Plans - Jan. 15

This past year has been incredibly busy on many fronts, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about the preservation of the Mullanphy Emigrant Home - or plans for its eventual full development.  Moving beyond that initial stabilization and buttoning up stage takes a bit of planning and feasibility assessments - and all of that costs money too.  So, to help us with that next step, you can support this great cause and the plan to establish and develop a world-class hostel at the Mullanphy Emigrant Home by coming out to the “sort of annual” Friends of Hostelling trivia night on Friday, January 15, 2010.

To register in advance, follow the instructions at www.moonlightramble.org.  Feel free to print and distribute the following flyer for the event to all of your trivia-minded friends and/or everyone you know who cares about preserving our irreplaceable historic, cultural, and architectural landmarks.

Scenes from the Preservation Fundraiser at the Coolest New Venue in Town

Last night the new Gallery at the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group’s office played host to a fundraiser for the historic preservation group, Friends of the San Luis.  As the following photos show, the event attracted a good crowd of visitors, many of whom enjoyed their first glimpse of the revitalization under way at Crown Square, in the heart of Old North.

When the street and sidewalk are finished, this will be the front door to the gallery.

The gallery space will be available for rent for other events.  Call the ONSLRG office (314-241-5031) or send an email to info@onsl.org for details.

Open House for Crown Square Apartments

It’s short notice, but if you’ve been waiting for the Crown Square Apartments to become available, now is the time.  On Saturday from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m., Crown Square Apartments will have an Open House for prospective tenants. 

As the flyer above notes, Crown Square offers a mix of unit sizes and types, from the more traditional to some that have more of a loft style.  So, if you’re in the market for a 1, 2, or 3-bedroom apartment in a phenomenal setting, come on out Saturday or give the leasing agents from Cohen-Esrey a call at 314-588-7267.  Please note that the starting point for the open house is at the Cohen-Esrey leasing office, 2323 N. 14th (at North Market), 2 blocks south of the former 14th Street Mall.
