Lafayette Tour
Visitors can view the extensive restoration of the Victorian houses of Lafayette Square in St. Louis on December 10, 2000 during the neighborhoods's annual Holiday Parlor Tour. (Poster watercolor painting by Lafayette Square Resident Sharon Stockmann.)

This year, the supernatural side of Lafayette Square's historic mansions is featured in the St. Louis neighborhood's annual Holiday Parlor Tour. Some of the homes of the neighborhood's most famous (now deceased) residents will be open to the public. This Haunted Holiday Parlour Tour will feature homes clad in holiday decor and costumed interpreters. A highlight of the tour is viewing of the three-story, Second French Empire home built in 1883 for D.C. Jaccard.

Horse-drawn carriage tours of Lafayette Park will also be offered. Carolers and other entertainers will perform, and local authors of books on Lafayette Square and St. Louis will be on hand. The Lafayette Square Restoration Committee will sell food and other items, and explain the latest version of Lafayette Square's Urban Design Plan. Neighborhood businesses and restaurants will be open as well.

Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 tour day. For more information on the tour and tickets, click here.
