Kirkwood: A Walk Through History

Saint Louis In Tune

Oct 6 2022 • 20 mins

Kirkwood is one of St Louis County’s oldest and best-preserved suburbs. It was born as a planned community, laid out in a grid spreading from the Pacific Railroad tracks placed in the 1850s and envisioned as a city escape. Its passion for historic preservation makes nearly every neighborhood a joy to walk through, and Kirkwood: A Walk through History provides the quintessential guide to maximize a stroll through its most interesting spots.

Explore Kirkwood’s preserved rail stations, Italianate mansions, works of famous architects, and more. Some of the walks in this book even allow the curious history buff to learn unvarnished tales of the not-so-rosy past as well. Find little-known facts and unexpected stories in Kirkwood’s busiest neighborhoods like downtown and the streets around Kirkwood Park. Walk alongside local author Kathy Schrenk as she shows off the best way to explore her hometown of Kirkwood.

This is Season 5! For more episodes, go to stlintune.com
