THE GRAND HOUSES
OF LAFAYETTE SQUARE

Twelve blocks west of the Mississippi River
lies historic Lafayette Square.

Immigrants settled here in the mid 1800's,
and built beautiful granite homes,
each 3-story Victorian house
facing the Lafayette Park.

In the years just before the Civil War
(1850-1862)
these fashionable residences circled
tree-lined Lafayette Park.

Fortunately, each house has been
meticulously restored to its
original Victorian grandeur.
