Fulfill your dream of living or operating your business in an old funeral home building! Sure, it may be haunted, but check out those 250+ original stained glass windows, brass chandeliers, vaulted ceilings, ancient patterned linoleum (from back when linoleum was interesting, eco-friendly, and high quality) and probably-not-operable pipe organ. Sitting on a 0.80+ acre lot, the structure is comprised of a 8,000 square foot main level, a 1,500 square foot apartment with dedicated entrance, restroom facilities, a full basement, and private off-street parking for 100+/- vehicles.

Similar to Baden Bank, this property came up for auction at a St. Louis City Tax Sale in September 2018. In an effort to save the building, South Side Spaces offered a bid and secured the property. Afterward, stabilization began; since that time, the building was cleared of mountains of unpleasant trash, water service has been turned on, electric service was upgraded with separate meters for residential & commercial areas, and a roof patch was installed.

If you can look past the neglect and creep-factor, this building is loaded with potential in the form of 1930s charm. And no, we did not find any dead bodies. Whew. Help keep the history of this property alive by revitalizing it! The building is available for purchase; contact Hilliker for additional information or to set up a tour!
