POINT OF INTEREST "F"
Walk east to the intersection of Schiller Street. Turn left (north)
at Good Buys, and continue to Simon's on the Waterfront.
 

The building that is now Simon's on the Waterfront was erected in 1867 as the St. Charles Wine Hall. The name is still partially visible on the north outside wall. Notice that the original cast iron balcony with a grape design is still in place. From 1890-1923 it was used as Hermann's high school. The first floor was the school's gymnasium. There were 4-inch upright steel poles in the gym supporting the second floor classrooms. It is said that Hermann's basketball teams had a home-court advantage because they knew how to dodge the poles! Simon's is a great night spot with weekend entertainment, and the adjoining restaurant serves lunch and dinner.
