St. Louis' northernmost neighborhood is Baden. First settled by German immigrants and African-Americans near the turn of the last century, Baden today is populated by fewer people than in recent years. This depopulation is due to a complex mix of forces that include disinvestment, modest housing sizes, supply and demand. Those who remain in Baden are dug in and consider it a diamond in the rough. KBIA's Trevor Harris visited the St. Louis neighborhood of Baden for the 40-40 Project and filed this report.
