Our distinct diversity also includes the uniqueness of residents and significant diversity of housing stock which built the neighborhood and continues to sustain Benton Park West into the future.

    Benton Park West, built primarily of German influence during the 1880s 1930s, is proud to be included in a city known as the brick city of the USA; This 6 x 12 block area demonstrates the dramatic differences in architectural style and building sizes varying from the large two and four family buildings, to single family Queen Anne, French Second Century, and even single story bungalows.

    Benton Park West is bounded by South Jefferson Avenue on the east, Cherokee Street on the south to Compton, then south to Potomac and west to Gravois Street on the Northwest. Click here for map.
