Just south of here stands the abandoned Wellston High School, a fusion of Classical elements with Art Deco details. This massive block of a building bears more resemblance to the factories that also stand empty in the area than it does to St. Louis's ornate school buildings.

To the west, this area is hemmed in by massive industrial swaths, including a large junk yard, and several brand new manufacturing concerns that have wiped out an entire neighborhood.
