We are excited to announce the celebration of our neighborhood’s past and present with the publication of Southampton St. Louis: An Unconventional History. Filled with rare images and interviews, this hardcover, coffee-table gem collects countless memories of our beloved neighborhood.
The Southampton Neighborhood Century Plaque is designed to showcase our history. Orders are placed in groups, you will be contacted when the order is going to be placed and the expected arrival. We won’t place orders until the quantity is met so it could be several weeks (after the initial order is placed). All dates will be verified with the City of St Louis tax records. If you have other information on the date of your home, please provide the information.
It’s time for the annual Holiday House Decorating Contest! Submit photo nominations (include address) to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 8th. Voting will begin December 11 on our Facebook page. Special thanks to Circa Properties for being a sponsor again this year!
