About Us

Lovers Lane Saint Jo

Lovers Lane is a beautiful winding street immortalized by poet Eugene Field from the poem “Lovers Lane, Saint Jo" and is the site of many fine homes today. Once a remote country lane where Eugene Field courted his future wife, Julia Comstock, in a horse and buggy.  A monument on Lover’s Lane commemorates Eugene Field and is located at the intersection of Northwest Parkway and Lovers Lane.
