Circa 1903

—Commons Neighborhood Historic District —

In 1830, still in the afterglow of the Louisiana Purchase, Nathan Boone was contracted to survey the lands of Missouri that would be recognized as St. Charles. By 1835, this plot resided within Andrew Wilson's subdivision. The first person documented to live on the property was Julia Stonebreaker who purchased the land from Ezra Overall in 1892.

In 1903, John and Margaret Hendry purchased the lot and constructed this beautiful 2½ story Colonial Revival style home. John worked for the American Car and Foundry Company. The ACF was booming and was the first to manufacture all-steel passenger cars for the London Underground and the New York subway system.

The exterior stands tall with its hipped roof and intersecting gable. It sits on a coursed rock-faced stone foundation. The original blue weatherboard siding is accented with red and beige trim. The front features an art glass cameo window, and wide cottage window with an art glass transom. A charming covered porch with Doric columns stretches across the width of the house. The spacious two-car garage, circa 1923, was designed to mimic the house's architecture and color scheme.

The interior showcases the original hardwood floors, pocket doors, built-in cabinetry, fireplace, and millwork. Ornate cast iron radiators fill the home with warmth. The servants'



staircase, butler's pantry, and call-buttons connected to the doorbell are an interesting glimpse into the past.

All who resided here took care to preserve a piece of history.
