The house is located in the historic Lafayette Square, considered the oldest urban park west of the Mississippi, where you can walk to world-class restaurants and sip coffee at delicious cafes and visit nearby Gateway Arch, Forest Park, and Enterprise Centerβ€”home of Stanley Cup-winning St. Louis Blues.

Like a picture out of a Victorian novel, Lafayette Park’s flowers, natural grasses, towering trees, waterfalls, fountains, and iconic iron bridges provide a peaceful backdrop to the city.

Twice yearly, the residents open their homes to the public for the ever-popular Spring and Garden Tour (first weekend in June) and the Lafayette Square Holiday Parlor Tour (second Sunday in December). Visitors even have the option to stay in one of these gloriously painted homes.

Within Lafayette, there are craft breweries; specialty shops; Park Avenue Coffee, which features original small-batch blends; quirky and one-of-a-kind restaurants; yoga and art studios; wine, chocolate, and rooftop bars; a lounge; and a must-try ice creamery.

If you are lucky enough to be in the city at the right time, there are annual neighborhood festivities that are fun to visit, including an antique fair (June); Cocktails on the Plaza (July); Movies in Lafayette Park (summer); Taste of Lafayette (August); Tour De Lafayette/Gateway Cup Bike Race (Friday before Labor Day); Tricks & Treats on Park (Saturday before Halloween); the Holiday Tree Lighting (second Saturday in December); and the Holiday Market (second Sunday in December), which features roasted chestnuts, spirits, and crafts.

Walk through the neighborhood and admire the 150-year-old two- and three-story Victorian mansions, commonly called the “painted ladies,” surrounding the lush 30-acre Lafayette Park, the oldest urban park west of the Mississippi.

There is something for everyone to enjoy in beautiful Lafayette, just 2 miles from Downtown St. Louis.
