Historic Saint Charles, Missouri

This building operated as a blacksmith from the early 1890’s. This is a German Style architecture. The arched window was formerly a door


This building is located at 515 S. Main Street.    One source  states that this building was constructed in 1875.   However, this was the site of Eckert Tavern well known between 1818 to 1846. It was a large building.  The second story was destroyed in 1876.  I am uncertain  if the remaining tavern was demolished or partially rebuilt in  1875

It currently houses a restaurant.

Flaugherty–McNair House. 724 Main Street

This house was built in 1840 by M. Flaugherty. It was later purchased by David McNair. This building is now used by Mad Hatter Antiques and More

The building was constructed in 1840

It is thought that this building was used as servants living quarters until the end of the Civil War. In later years, this building was used as a private residence and a retail establishment.
