St. Louis survey finds dozens of historic, triangular 'flounder' houses are endangered
Most of St. Louis' 277 historic triangular-shaped houses known as "flounders" are in good shape, but dozens are considered endangered, according to a months-long survey performed by the city's Cultural Resources Office. Flounder houses are a mainly 19th-century building style featuring a prominent asymmetrical roof that were built throughout St. Louis' older neighborhoods. Many of these historic structures still stand, but until the survey, the city didn't know just how still existed.
