|The Tower Grove East neighborhood is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C for architecture. The neighborhood is locally significant for the quality and diversity of its architectural components and for their embodiment of an intact collection of forms, styles, and methods of construction previously recognized as significant under the Multiple Property Documentation Form (MPDF) South St. Louis Historic Working- and Middle-Class Streetcar Suburbs. The nomination is submitted using this MPDF under the subcontext: Architectural Patterns of South St. Louis Streetcar Suburbs: 1880-1940. Because of architecturally significant outlier properties that both predate, and post-date the period covered by the MPDF, the period of significance for contributing resources in the District has been expanded to between c.1850 and 1946. The neighborhood is a remarkably intact collection of residential, commercial, religious and educational resources that collectively form a district of superior architectural quality and integrity. Surrounded on all sides by existing (and pending) National Register Districts and Certified Local Historic Districts, the Tower Grove East District contains a collection of historic architectural resources that possess integrity of design, materials, setting, and craftsmanship. Its listing in the National Register of Historic Places will make a significant contribution to the already-recognized catalogue of high-merit architectural resources surrounding Tower Grove Park, a National Historic Landmark (NHL 12/20/89).
