Exhibit: Lucas Place: Lost Neighborhood of St. Louis’ Gilded Age.
Exhibit will open with a reception on March 22 at 5:30 pm at Architecture St. Louis, the office of Landmarks Association, 911 Washington Avenue, Suite 170. Free and open to the public. The exhibit will be open through July, 9:00-5:00, Monday-Friday.
Landmarks Association and Campbell House Museum are sponsoring this program in partnership with the Missouri Humanities Council with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The exhibit will explore the history, people, and buildings associated with St. Louis’ premier residential neighborhood of the mid-19th century. Located between 13th and 16th Streets along what is now Locust, Lucas Place was once populated by some of St. Louis’ most renowned families and citizens. Its success was short-lived however as rapid commercial and industrial development surrounded the street and residents departed for new residential districts farther from St. Louis’ commercial core. Today, the Campbell House Museum is all that remains of this once elegant and fascinating neighborhood.
