Landmarks Association of St. Louis

Landmarks’ Historic Rehabilitation Nearing Completion

Landmarks Association's "new" home at 1805-07 S. 9th Street was donated to the organization by Youth Education & Health in Soulard (YEHS). E.M. Harris is serving as general contractor and Urban Werks has served as project architect. RISE Community Development provided pre-development assistance, and to date the Kling Family Foundation, William A. Kerr Foundation, the H. Meade Summers Jr. Historic Preservation Foundation, and many other generous donors have provided essential financial support.  

After significant covid-related delays, we are nearing completion of the building.  The bowing primary facade has been completely rebuilt. The building has been completely reengineered to address extensive masonry/structural issues. All systems are in place, the heat is on and all of our windows are installed. The buildings have new roofs, new floors, new lighting, and state of the art technology infrastructure. The glass atrium reception area and new stair are complete as is the restoration of the rear gallery porches. Historic window mantles and door trims have been refinished/replicated. We can't wait to invite you all down to see the complete transformation of these buildings! Look for invitations to open house opportunities in the winter of 2022/23 and for programs to begin in the spring of 2023. Thanks to everyone for your generosity and patience while we have put these important buildings back together.
