Discover the Lively Neighborhood of Soulard

Live in the Epicenter of Fun
Posted: August 25, 2017 by Ryan Shakofsky

St. Louis City is comprised of many diverse neighborhoods.  The homes are as diverse as the people who live in them.  In the Soulard neighborhood, many of the homes are row house and multi-family residences when compared to the shotgun homes on the Hill and small brick bungalows throughout South City or the victorian era homes you will find in Lafayette Square.  Ernest and Linda have lived and loved the City for years and their home at 1111 Allen Ave. is just short of amazing. They chose Soulard because of the diversity, walkability, and historic architecture.
