Here is a history of Lindenwood Park as relayed by Mr. and Mrs. Schneidewind of the 6600 block of Pernod.
Lindenwood Park did not exist until after the 1955 bond issue. Then it was a four-block-long by one-block-wide area of woods with sinkholes and kids’ club houses.
This is another one of St. Louis' clean and tidy neighborhoods. Manicured yards, uniform tree lined streets and a strong sense of neighborhood pride help showcase Lindenwood Park. The extremely high occupancy rate proves it's a popular and desirable place. The current residents are acting as great stewards of the homes along narrow, hilly city streets mostly built in the 1930's. The streets on the west side of the neighborhood are wider than usual, with some of the largest front yards in the city. Homes built in the 1940's and 1950's set back rather far from the street sit on the west side near I-44 and Wabash.
