We have had an overwhelming response for this year’s kick-off walk to the Central Library in Downtown St. Louis. The walk is officially SOLD OUT as the library tour can only accommodate a certain size group. If you are interested in attending another one of our special walks, please visit the Ten Toe website for walk schedules and further details. The next special walk will be on May 14 to the North Riverfront.

Join CMT and Guest Walk leader Michael Allen for a tour of the North Riverfront on Tuesday, May 14. Architectural historian Michael Allen founded Preservation Research Office in August 2009 after having worked professionally in historic preservation for nearly five years. The Preservation Research Office synthesizes Allen’s professional expertise and practice in public architectural history, started in 2003 when he began writing the widely-read website (and now blog) Ecology of Absence. Allen’s research has remained concerned with the impact of deindustrialization, population loss and postwar urban renewal projects on the preservation of historic urban landscapes. In recent years, Michael has lectured on architectural history and historic preservation at Washington University in St. Louis, New York University, St. Louis University, Fontbonne University, the St. Louis Artists’ Guild and other institutions.
