History:

This land is a part of the original Spanish land grant and was reserved for park purposes forever when the town of Carondelet was laid out in 1832. The 1.66-acre square was a gift from the City of Carondelet to the City of St. Louis in 1882. By 1884, it had been improved as a park at a cost of $2,549.00. One of Carondelet's three town markets was built in a corner of the square and was later leased by St. Louis for use as a private market.
