1. Ripple Row Marker
Inscription.  The lots were sold at Auction in 1865 with the dissolution of the French common fields. This connected series of Victorian style red brick townhouses has four-level, high bay windows on the façade with mansard roofs. The six homes may be similar, but each has enchanting, subtle differences. This unique architectural form is not seen anywhere else in St. Louis. Address 2622 was the home of beer baron George Schilling, of the Schilling and Schneider Brewery.
 
Erected 2019 by Soulard Historic District.
