Lafayette Square

Lafayette Square is bounded on the north by Chouteau Avenue, on the south by Interstate 44, on the east by Dolman Street and on the west by South Jefferson Avenue.


Shortly after the sale of the St. Louis Commons was authorized in 1836, an area on the north edge of the common field, was set aside to become the site of the city’s first public park.
