For my second #historicwednesday post today, allow me to tell you the story of Vandeventer Place. Vandeventer Place was an early manifestation of the "private place" concept, the precursor to gated communities. It was bounded by Vandeventer, Bell, Grand, and Enright. Conceived in 1870, it was named for the land's owner at the time. Vandeventer Place was the most exclusive neighborhood of the day and consisted of many architectural treasures, including one mansion designed by H.H. Richardson himself (Richardsonian Romanesque ring a bell?). The grand mansions all faced away from the outside and inward towards their exclusive street, which restricted access to residents only and was closed off by grand gates on either end. The neighborhood was known for decades as one of the most opulent and wealthy neighborhoods in the city. However, by the 1920s, the continued growth of the city pushed the wealthy further outward, and nearby industry and traffic wore away at the place's luster. By 1957 the neighborhood had been completely abandoned for some time, and was split in ownership between the city and the Veteran's Administration, who built their hospital on the location. All that remains of North city's version of Compton Heights is the eastern entry gate, which now resides in Forest Park by the jewel box. What a damn tragedy. #vandeventer #vandeventerplace #vandeventerave #grandave #grandavenue #grand #jeffvanderlou #privateplace #gatedcommunity #privatecommunity #privatestreet #rich #wealth #opulence #mansions #gildedage #victorian #romanesque #richardsonianromanesque #romanesquerevival #secondempire #history #historic #stlhistory #stlouis #stlmo #stl #waybackwednesdays #waybackwednesday
