Dated Donna back in the mid sixties and was friend with her brother. Met Buster and visited the house a couple of times. Be happy to answer any questions. Anyone know where Donna and her brother ended.

I was at the house in the early 80's to pick up a piano (83 or 84 maybe?)At the time I was told Dave Croft owned it. The story was he got it From Bo Beuckman as part of a land deal for the ground where Laura Buick sits, as I remember. It was kind of neat, but more like an Institution than a house. I was reading about St.Louis area mobster's recently and his name came up. I got to wondering if the place was still standing and who may own it by now. I haven't been out that way in many years.
My brother in law grew up in Washington Park in the early to mid 60's. He told story's how Buster would Drive by and hand candy out the car window to the kids on the street . Kind of neat to think of a gangster doing that back then. What passes for gangsters now would likely drive by shooting instead!

It is the same house. My dad (Jay Greer) owns the house no joke. But there isn't tunnels or hidden rooms (that we can find) and it is a moat house. So ya I've lived in this house my whole life.

I think the house the other person was referring to with the tunnels may have been a different house owned by Art Mowe. I went to a house he had owned quite a few years ago and there were "hidden" doors into other adjacent rooms. I believe this is the house the person was talking about.

I carpeted that house years ago when Bo Beuckman the Ford dealer owned it. And yes! It had a secret room then. Maybe Bo changed things or expanded that area doing away with the secret secret room....
