Welcome to Elegant Living's exclusive preview of the 2014 Central West End Association House & Garden Tour, now celebrating its 44th year. Slated for May 31 and June 1, this year’s event features the mansions of Portland Place, which, along with neighboring Westmoreland Place, is one of the few remaining World’s Fair-era private streets in the city. Portland Place was designed in 1888 by noted St. Louis private place surveyor Julius Pitzman for wealthy St. Louisans who wished to escape the densely populated city core.

It is not an overstatement to say that Portland Place boasts a social, cultural and architectural heritage unparalleled in St. Louis and beyond.
