I think I've mentioned before that I have an obsession with historic homes and buildings. It's so much of an addiction for me that I live in a 100+ year old home and together with Mr. Peanutbutter own 4 other centurion buildings. I can spend hours driving around the city, through both the 'good' and 'bad' neighborhoods, drooling over various historic properties - rehabbed or crumbling.

All of this banter brings me to This Old House. I was wondering around the web last night, and found this article about inexpensive historic neighborhoods around the nation. Of course, I really went there to see if St. Louis or even Belleville made the cut. No dice.
