Historic Northeast Mansions - Volume 12 - 512 Gladstone Boulevard.

 All I know about this home is that it was built in 1885 and was just north on the Street from the
from the D.O. Smart residence.  It was classified in writings as a brick, New Amsterdam style residence, with a stepped parapet gable built by Martin E. Tomlinson for an unknown owner.  Tomlinson was also the builder for the Scarritt-Royster residence.

 At any rate, here it is... it's being renovated and is for sale.   Contact Eric B. and Associates for further information.

Lafayette Square Homes Tour - Volume 1

 This year's tour coincides with the 250th birthday celebration of St. Louis symbolized by the "cake" above.   Their were vendors set up all along two sides of Lafayette Park with all sorts of interesting things.

 Above... a very large mirror reflecting the home across the street.

 The first house I'm profiling is at 2114 Lafayette, built in 1870 in the Second Empire Victorian style with a distinctive Mansard roof.  The current owners purchased the home in 1983 and have spent thousands of hours in restoration.    The first floor was open for touring.

 The owners have also invested a lot of time in creating their garden, which was also on tour.
