#142: Cherokee Business District

The Cherokee Station Business Association includes over 50 independently owned and operated businesses over seven blocks on Cherokee Street. Dating back to late 19th century, this was the place where people would do many things such as shopping, dining, among others. There was (and still is) always something for everyone here. This has always been a place for the arts, as art centers and small live entertainment venues are here. St. Louis' 'largest Cinco de Mayo party' is thrown in the Cherokee district as well.

For those curious about the complete and detailed history of the Cherokee-Lemp district, there is a virtual walking tour available. Several signs are found in the neighborhood, all over the historical buildings.

This statue was made by Bill Christman (who painted the Chuck-a-Burger cake)

3401 South Jefferson, ST. LOUIS, MO, 63118
Cake artist: Sophia Dalpaiz-Brown

The cake was sold on 1/1/2015 for $575 in the biddingforgood auction.
