This property actually went on the market quite a few times before being torn down. I actually have the post dispatch and ladue news clippings from the times it was on the market. Was a beautiful home! Wish his homes could make it on the Historical Registry.

This home could potentially been listed on the National Historic Register. However, that would not have stopped anyone (by the force of law) from demolishing or severely altering the house.

The City of Ladue has no historic preservation ordinance and does not seem to place much value on preserving some of the very high quality homes and structures within its borders. Several buildings by Harris Armstrong are presently on the National Historic Register including the Shanley Building (Clayton), the Cori House (Glendale), and the Plaza Square Apartment Complex (City of Saint Louis). In each case, it is up to the local municipality how to protect such properties.

You can view many examples of Harris Armstrong's work on my Flickr photostream at:


I might be interested in seeing your clippings from the Post and the Ladue News from the times the house had been on the market.
