"Fullerton Place is significant both for architecture and as a virtually intact example for the enduring success of that paradigm of community planning--the St. Louis private street system. Exclusively the work of St. Louis architects, Fullerton Place dates from 1892 through 1909. Marred by only 5 demolitions and one intrusion, the remaining fifty-two houses compose a tightly-woven essay on the virtues of academic tradition." [From the nomination to the National Register of Historic Places as prepared by Janice Broderick, researcher, Jill R. Johnson, researcher, Mary M. Stiritz, research associate, and Carolyn Hewes Toft, executive director, September, 1979.]
