Carr Square

Carr Square general boundaries are defined as Cass Ave. on the North, southward to N. 13th St. to N Tucker Blvd on the East westward to Cole St. on the South, northward to N. Jefferson Ave. on the West to Cass Ave.


Carr Square historically provided housing for successive waves of immigrants to the area. German Protestants first inhabited the area, settling around Carr Square itself. About 1842, a group of Irish immigrants from County Kerry settled to the northeast near 18th Street and O’Fallon, an area that later became known as "Kerry Patch."
