Early forecasts suggest we’re not in for a White Christmas in 2020. Nonetheless, these snow-covered photos from Dutchtown past got us in the holiday spirit! These old photos are of two prominent estates once located in Downtown Dutchtown near Meramec Street and Virginia Avenue.
We took a walk through the Mount Pleasant neighborhood on a frosty December morning. The City of St. Louis designates Mount Pleasant as one of its 79 distinct neighborhoods. But especially west of Interstate 55, the neighborhood maintains much of the same character as the broader Dutchtown area.
Neighborhood photographer Chip Smith of Cross Grand beautifully captured the scene at the 8:46 @ 8:46 Dutchtown Family March for Justice and Equality on Saturday, June 13th.
Last evening DT2 • Downtown Dutchtown hosted our first in-person After Hours event in several months with the Havana’s Cuisine food truck parked at the Neighborhood Innovation Center. In spite of the drizzly weather, we had an excellent turnout and a ton of fun. There were Cuban sandwiches and empanandas, music and dancing, giveaways of Dutchtown Proud yard signs and gift cards to Original Crusoe’s, and community building.
