Compton Heights

A Circa Guide to Compton Heights

The Compton Heights neighborhood located on the near Southside of the City of St. Louis in the shadow of the great water tower of Reservoir Park is one of the earliest planned residential developments of the American nineteenth century. Laid out in 1889 in accordance with a plan that viewed nature as neighbor and not as an enemy to be subjugated by some rectilinear grid, its wide setbacks and curving streets create remarkable vistas, which are punctuated by more than 200 homes of extraordinary and varied interest. The entire neighborhood is part of the Compton Hill Historic District. The people who live here are just as extraordinary and varied as the homes. The neighborhood is proud of its cheerful diversity and the range of talented people who have chosen to live here.
