Daily Dose of Blairmont 71

    Left and right:
  • 2215 Dodier Street, built 1887 (privately owned)
  • 2209 Dodier Street, built 1887 (MLK 3000 LLC, October 2006)

November 2007

It's another owner-occupied house, butted up against Blairmont's neglect and abusive depopulation tactics.

Another slice of St. Louis's rich architectural heritage, another fine example of its unparalleled masonry and red brick vernacular.

February 2008

Another piece of the city's urban environment, which needs to be built up and encouraged instead of desecrated and sabotaged.

And another property that was doing just fine till Blairmont bought it.

The house on the left, 2215 Dodiers was the home of my Great Grandparents Otto C. and Maude Weber They lived in this house after it was built. They were still there in the 1920s. Any additonal photos or information would be wonderful.
