Gingerbread Style

Another distinctive architectural style found in several neighborhoods around St. Louis is the “gingerbread style.” These houses are impossible to miss, with their steeply-pitched roofs and charming, fairy-tale appearance. The most impressive thing about these homes, however, is their uniqueness. For block after block, you can look at dozens of homes, and never find two that are exactly alike, from the stone and brickwork, to the placement of chimneys, to they types of glass in the windows. And as beautiful as these houses are right now at the very beginning of spring, they’re even more spectacular lit up for Christmas, just like a gingerbread village!
