1. Settlers' Homes Marker
Inscription. During the mid 19th century, German pioneers settling the open land south of St. Louis built homes in the style of this pair of houses, 1936 and 1938 Cherokee. Often they were built as farm houses. As the farm land evolved into the urban neighborhoods that now make up South St. Louis City, rows of later homes were built between and among these scattered early homes. This pair is atypical of the German settlers homes built in the 1840's, 1850's, and 1860's in that the gables face the street, and the pair is connected by a breezeway.

Note the soft texture of the brick used in these and other early buildings.
