Old North House & Community Tour Less Than 2 Weeks Away

The annual Old North St. Louis House & Community Tour is rapidly approaching, so start spreading the word and make plans to join us for a celebration of the dramatic community transformation in progress throughout Old North.  Scheduled for Saturday, May 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., this year’s tour will highlight the soon-to-be-completed redevelopment of the former 14th Street Pedestrian Mall (including commercial and residential spaces in historically rehabbed buildings at Crown Square), community gardens, the future Old North Grocery Co-op, and several historic homes.  The residential spaces on the tour represent the range of housing styles available in Old North, including a work in progress rehab of a former LRA building, an adaptive re-use of a former warehouse, rental apartments, and two properties that have been recognized with ”Most Enhanced” awards from Landmarks Association.  Click on the following link: oldnorthhouseandcommunitytourflyerfinal to download a PDF version of this flyer, and please pass it along to all who are interested in neighborhood revitalization, historic preservation, community-based development.

Tickets for the tour are available for purchase at $10 in advance (in person from ONSLRG’s office or the Urban Studio Cafe) or online, at the House Tour page on the ONSL website (where you can also learn about volunteer opportunities at the tour).  On the day of the tour, tickets will be available at $12 from the registration and information tent at the southwest corner of St. Louis Avenue & N. 14th Street (across from Crown Candy Kitchen).  For more information, call the ONSLRG office at 314-241-5031.
