Beginning in the mid-19th century, St. Louis' wealthiest and most powerful citizens designed a unique solution to the unrestricted and relentless expansion of the industrial city into previously exclusive residential neighborhoods. That solution was the private place, a street owned entirely by its residents and governed by a number of restrictive covenants intended to keep the burgeoning metropolis at bay. A surprisingly large number of these private places have survived and thrived into the 21st century, with the largest concentration located in St. Louis' Central West End. This c. 3 hour bicycle tour will explore the remarkable architecture (exteriors only) of eight of these private streets, whose houses inspired a national magazine in 1902 to rhapsodize that "It is said that to see a truly beautiful woman . . . you must go to Paris. It may be just as truly said that to see a truly beautiful home . . . you must go to St. Louis." Many of these homes were built by businessmen whose companies once were household names; one was occupied briefly by one of the pre-eminent poets of the 20th century; and one house has walls that don't talk but surely do rock n' roll.
