RFT Throws Spotlight on Esley Hamilton, Preservationist

Esley Hamilton discussed Greek Revival architecture in America at the Chatillon-DeMenil House on September 27.

This week's issue of the Riverfront Times carries a feature article by Aimee Levitt on the inimitable Esley Hamilton, Historian for the St. Louis County Department of Parks and Recreation. The article, entitled "To Preserve and Protect: Esley Hamilton has a boundless passion for St. Louis' architectural past", provides a good overview of Esley's career and contributions to preservation efforts in St. Louis. Esley probably would rather see a feature article on an endangered building, but he's earned the attention.

He definitely has. Great to bring more awareness to our city's great treasures...people and places.
