It’s one of two at the St. Louis Street Department’s Headquarters, awaiting installation at Providence Place and Michigan Avenue.
The sign notes that Providence Place in the Dutchtown neighborhood has the honorary designation of Knapstein Place.
Knapstein Place was named for Frank Knapstein, a German immigrant, contractor and namesake for Knapstein Place. The one-block street was one of six in St. Louis whose names were changed during World War I because of anti-German hysteria.
The dedication of a sign marking the honorary designation of Knapstein Place will be at 9 a.m. Saturday, November 15. Reproduction signs can be made for $30-$40 apiece. If you want one, e-mail me for details at email@example.com.
