The Cherokee-Lemp Special Business District is excited to announce the return of the Cherokee-Lemp History Walk, taking place on April 23rd, 11am to 4pm. History Walk events will take place both inside businesses and out on the sidewalks and available lots of Cherokee Street East of Jefferson Avenue.

As one of St. Louis’ most beautiful and well-preserved historic districts we are looking forward to showcasing Antique Row’s unique legacy and architecture.

  • Take advantage of a free trolley ride, featuring an educational tour by local historian Nini Harris.
  • Enjoy free tours at both The Lemp and Chatillon-DeMenil Mansions and the to learn about these powerful families during their heyday in the 19th century.
  • We will feature several book signings with local authors.
  • You’ll see the strolling fashion show, with retro and antique costumed actors promenading and available for photo opportunities.
  • Historic photographs will be on display in many shops, since many of our buildings have been standing for 150 years!
  • There will be a screening of the “St. Louis Centuries” television series at the Irish Corner Pub (1900 Cherokee St.)

Other attractions will include a variety of indoor and outdoor musical acts, retail and food vendors, face painting, and more! We hope to see you at this springtime neighborhood celebration. This event is family and pet friendly. Cherokee Street will remain open for normal traffic. Street parking is available.

  • Quoted

    “The beauty of the maturation of Cherokee Street over the past couple of months is that it has not shown a familiar trajectory for a St. Louis revitalization. There are no posh nightclubs with "pioneer" status nor any ultra-elite art galleries present.

    Rather, there's an organized community dedicated to improving quality of life and maintaining the uniqueness of St. Louis's most diverse and urban business district.”
