CRO Completed Grant to Study Flounder Houses

Soulard Flounder House

The Flounder House Survey

The Cultural Resources Office has completed a Historic Preservation Fund Grant from the Missouri State Historic Preservation Office to survey and study the City's historic Flounder houses, as the first phase of an effort to promote their preservation and reuse. This rare property type, sometimes called a "half-house," is present in only a few eastern cities and St. Louis. Watch for the posting of the Survey report and other information in September 2015. At left is a beautifully restored Flounder house in Soulard.
