Haunted Lafayette Square in St. Louis
Having been to Savannah and other beautiful cities, it never gets old to see the impressive architecture used back in the day. Buildings then had such personalities, each one different and unique. I don’t mind the cookie cutter homes, but there’s nothing like a home from the early 1900’s. Of course, I am sure they would love our technology today than their pretty buildings, but hey, I’ll guess I’ll have to ask them some day!
Every neighborhood has that ONE home that everyone avoids, talks about, walks quickly past because it just gives them a bad vibe. Well what if it was the ENTIRE neighborhood? In May of 1896, the “Great Cyclone” as they would deem it, destroyed this area, eating everything in it’s path. One of the deadliest tornadoes in history, it would take 255 precious souls that day.
With all of that death, it would be no surprise that the neighborhood, and the Park it surrounds, are said to be haunted with those who perished in the storm. This suburb just outside the city of St. Louis is so beautiful and quaint, it’s almost hard to wrap your head around the devestation that occured there. I drove and took pics, not really feeling anything but sadness for so many people who left this Earth so quickly.
