906 Elias Ave, Saint Louis, MO 63147 $9,500
This sweet little Colonial Revival cottage was built in 1914 in the Baden neighborhood of Saint Louis. I know it needs an enormous amount of work, and the neighborhood is high crime, but the darling exterior makes me want to pick it up and give it a hug.
When “the extensive German migration to the St. Louis area in the 1840s and 1850s that Baden began to assume importance. So many Germans settled in the area that it became referred to as “Germantown.” The name of Baden is generally associated with Frederick Kraft, a pioneer settler in 1852, who was born in Baden-Baden, Germany. Kraft, operator of a saloon, submitted Baden as the name for the first post office in 1860; the name was officially adopted when he became the postmaster. The first market house was built in 1862 and Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church, the first church, was founded in 1862. By the 1870s, the surrounding farming community and a local population of 400 supported eleven stores and three wagon shops in Baden and by 1876, the town was incorporated into the City of St. Louis.”
