St. Louis City Historic Places

Soulard

The City of St. Louis is broken into 79 governement designated neighborhoods, many of them contain historic districts and most have several historic places. The Soulard Neighborhood is an example and is a St. Louis Historic District, as well as being listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Crown Candy Kitchen is another historic St. Louis landmark and has been in business since 1913. It is located in the Old North St. Louis Neighborhood. A unique historic place is the Shrine of St. Joseph. Historic because it was it was built during the 1840's. Uniquely historic because it is the location of the only authenticated miracle that has occurred in the Midwest! And it is located right here in St. Louis City, in the Columbus Square Neighborhood.

But what makes a building, structure or location "historic"? For the purpose of our list, we had several questions we asked. Did the location, structure or building have "history" happen there? Was the owner or a resident of the location, structure or building important to St. Louis history? Or was the location, structure or building itself important to St. Louis history? Has it been placed on the National Register of Historic Places and/or recognized as a St. Louis area "landmark"? Is it a museum highlighting some time period, person or place in St. Louis history?

Below is a list over sixty historic places that can be visited in the City of St. Louis and its Neighborhoods. Some are free, others charge an admission fee and still others are private and can only be viewed from the street or by the owner's permission (please be courteous!). Spend a day visiting one or plot out an entire of day of historic places to visit! Enjoy! We did!
