Old North St. Louis Restoration Group will host our annual Home Tour & Art Fair on Saturday, September 16th to demonstrate the art of community in Old North. More than a dozen sites, including a mix of homes, community gardens, artworks, and neighborhood businesses will be open for visitors from throughout St. Louis. Visitors usually include many former residents who grew up in the neighborhood and come back every year to see how the neighborhood has changed, as well as prospective residents who want to get a sense of the community, and many others interested in neighborhood revitalization or historic preservation or sustainable communities.
