Cherokee Street's Antique Row

Cherokee Street was once the central hub for the working class at the turn of the century with many locally run shops and saloons filling up the street. While the dressmakers, butchers, and blacksmiths are no longer active there, their stunning houses and storefronts have stood the test of time. With the influx of German immigration and brewery workers for the three main breweries in the area (Lemp, Falstaff, and Anheuser Busch), it’s no wonder this neighborhood thrived.

The butchers and blacksmiths have been replaced by coffee shops, and antique stores, but you can still feel the warmth of the community and marvel at the homes that still stand.

Taking a walk down Cherokee is always a delight.
