The Gates of Kingsbury Place

Kingsbury Place is a private place neighborhood in St. Louis, Missouri that was founded in 1902.

The land had been surveyed by Julius Pitzman, surveyor and planner, who had been the Chief Engineer for Forest Park and who was considered "the father of the private place" in the United States.[1] Pitzman built his own house at #6 Kingsbury Place.[2]

The beaux-arts entry gates, #3, #7, and #11 were designed by Thomas P. Barnett of Barnett, Haynes & Barnett.[3]

The neighborhood was designated a City Landmark by the City of St. Louis in 1973.[4]
