Bevo Mill Neighborhood in Saint Louis, MO

Bevo Neighborhood

Bevo is a St. Louis neighborhood that might be named after a beverage. Bevo was a non-alcoholic beer made by Anheuser Busch beginning in 1916 and that was popular during Prohibition. On the other hand, August Busch, Sr. built a famous restaurant in the Bevo neighborhood, halfway between his brewery and his home. It reproduced a Flemish windmill, which he called the Bevo Mill. The windmill still stands, and the neighborhood around it is sometimes called Bevo Mill.

The east boundary of Bevo is the Missouri Pacific tracks. Bates Street and Leona Street are the boundaries on the southeast, and Holly Hills Boulevard is the border on the south. On the west, Cristy Boulevard and South Kingshighway Boulevard mark the edges of the community. The north boundary is Chippewa Street. The ZIP code for Bevo is 63116.

Some streets in Bevo are lined with wooden Dutch Colonial Revival homes, built with broad flaring roofs that make the houses resemble barns. These Dutch houses mingle with brick bungalows. Many homes throughout Bevo have brickwork decorated with carved stone, or are varied with courses of brick of contrasting color laid in intricate designs.

All stand behind small lawns at street level or on terraces. Many streets hold brick two-family or four-family residences, with their own small lawns or flights of steps.

The Holly Hills area of Bevo holds more elaborate homes. Some are Dutch Colonial, but many are bungalows or large brick homes with touches of Federal or Greek Revival style. They were built mostly in the 1920s.

Bevo has a strong identity, a definite style that sets it apart from many other neighborhoods of St. Louis. It’s a distinctive look, based, perhaps, on one man’s fanciful windmill.
