Historic Drosten House in Benton Park Under Rehab

Historic Drosten House in Benton Park Under Rehab

The historic Drosten House at 3324 Missouri in Benton Park, constructed circa 1867, is under rehab and is nearing completion. A write-up of the structure’s history is here, provided by Landmarks Association of St. Louis.

Vacant since at least 1997 per city records, the historic structure had fallen into disrepair. Below is a pre-rehab shot of the structure from Geo St. Louis:

Today, the story is much different:

During rehab, the structure’s facade was removed completely and relaid. The building was “faceless” for many months. It is a welcome sight to see the historic home put back together and guaranteed a future of something other than a landfill.

This is not the only incredible transformation on the 3300 block of Missouri either. Check out 3339 Missouri’s rehab here.
