Literary Landmarks: T. S. Eliot Home

TheMount This house at 4446 Westminster Place, St. Louis was built in 1904 by Architect/Builder Henry W. Eliot. The Federal Revival Townhouse gains its notoriety because it was the home of the poet T.S. Eliot. The house was built by his father Henry who was president of a local brick company which accounts for the high-quality brick and flawless course work. T.S. Eliot was 15 or 16 when his family moved into the house. He wrote his first poem at the age of 15, a school exercise which was later published in the Harvard Advocate, the university's student magazine. The T.S. Eliot House became a City Landmark in 1976 but is privately owned.
