Compton Heights, St. Louis, MissouriWhy Buy Here?
Unlike many urban neighborhoods, Compton Heights has never experienced a signiﬁcant period of decline. The entire section is listed as a local historic district. A 60-year-old homeowners association keeps things tightly knit, organizing an annual Easter parade, an Oktoberfest celebration, and a Halloween festival with horse-drawn hay rides through the streets. There's also a large community garden, and the nabe is a block from Reservoir Park, a 36-acre green space surrounding a 19th-century brick water tower.Shown:
