Save this old house. The brick Queen Anne and its neighbors most likely were built for prominent men of industry. Our featured home is situated in the O’Fallon neighborhood of Saint Louis, a neighborhood anchored by two major public parks, O’Fallon Park and Fairground Park. In fact, # 4248 W. Florissant is in a row of wonderful old brick homes opposite the expansive O’Fallon Park. The park was named for Colonel O’Fallon. He came to Saint Louis after being severely wounded at the Battle of Tippecanoe in the War of 1812. Later he became assistant to his uncle William Clark of the famed Lewis and Clark Expedition. The land the park now sits on was a part of a 600 acre land holding of Colonel O’Fallon.
According to About Saint Louis, “O’Fallon Park has a 5 acre stocked fishing and boating lake with a boathouse; four large picnic pavilions, a seasonal spray pool; a playground, athletic fields for softball and football; and lighted tennis and basketball courts. The brand new O’Fallon Park Recreation Complex is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2012. The complex, as well as the new recreation complex in Carondelet Park, are the only new rec centers that have been built in any of the city parks since 1971. The O’Fallon Park Recreation Complex features an indoor Aquatic Center with slides, splash pool, children’s pool and an outdoor lap pool. The rec center also has a gymnasium, fitness center, indoor track, locker rooms, community center and other amenities., although the O’Fallon neighborhood was upscale at the turn of the century, it is not a stable area today.”
