Carondelet Highlights

Many people know that Carondelet was one of several small, established towns that was later annexed by the city of St. Louis. It really does retain some of its small town feel, such as the above street shown above.Below is a fascinating church; the older, more severe structure has been partially enveloped by a later Romanesque Revival building.Carondelet was also the recipient of a Carnegie Library, as this beautiful structure anchors the main drag, Michigan Avenue, in the downtown area.And finally, the wonderful convent of The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.See an aerial view of the area here.
