The Jeff-Vander-Lou (JVL) neighborhood is situated between North Vandeventer Avenue on the northwest, Natural Bridge avenue on the northeast, North Jefferson Avenue on the East, Delmar Boulevard on the south, and North Compton Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive on the Southwest.
Historically, the majority of the JVL neighborhood is part of an area referred to as the Yeatman area. The area is named for a prominent Tennessee native who relocated to St. Louis in 1842. James E. Yeatman was among the founders of the Mercantile Library Association, a previous president of the Merchants bank, and director of the Western Sanitary Commission during the Civil War.
