2340 Park Avenue was the next home on the tour, shown below. This home was built in 1878 for Casper Fischer and his wife Elizabeth. built as a two and a half story early Italianate style house, it was remodeled to the French Second Empire style with a Mansard roof and full third floor. The owners also renovated the 1891 Carriage House with the second floor serving as guest quarters.
My daughter Kelly, along with boyfriend Jon, now lives in St. Louis... her home is in an area south of Tower Grove Park around Magnolia Avenue. It is awash in carefully restored homes from the 19th and early 20th Centuries. I love the area. I will post more tomorrow or Monday.
