In Search of Nail Houses in St. Louis


{the perfect example of a nail house – Seattle, WA}

Google Sightseeing has an interesting post up about nail houses, those homes that have refused to be removed in the face of large developments. They offer great examples from Bismark, Washington, D.C. and plenty from overseas. Do we have any nail houses here in St. Louis? Does our capitalist nature, eminent domain and an easy-to-move-to-the-burbs environment mean that there are no examples here? Do you know of nail houses in the St. Louis area?
