1. Menard Triplets Marker
Inscription.  2105 Menard St. was the first & middle house of the "Menard Triplets". Back half built in 1850 & front portion added in late 1870's. Once vacant & vandalized, the house was restored in 1985 with interior pieces from the old Laclede Gas Bldg, the Title Guarantee Bldg, Maplewood Jr. High & the Old State Hospital on Arsenal. As the story goes, the brick wall built in 1933 in the backyard became known as the "Feud Wall" resulting from the owner to the north stealing firewood from his neighbor.
