Ninth District Police Station
3021 Samuel Shepard Drive
Architect: Albert Osburg

Albert A. Osburg designed a series of Art Deco police stations for the City of St. Louis in the 1930s. In 1990, they were closed down as the city consolidated police services. Some have found new uses, but this one remains vacant and deteriorating. Washington Metropolitan AME Church took possession of the building in the mid-2000s and sealed it. Notions of a renovation have thus far not panned out.
