BURNSIDE-SANDUSKY GOTHIC HOUSE
720 South 10th Street
The Burnside-Sandusky Gothic House is located at 720 South 10th Street in St. Joseph,
Buchanan County, Missouri. South 10th Street is located just southeast of downtown St.
Joseph, and is part of a mature residential neighborhood.
The neighborhood developed as a mixture of single-family and multi-family residences, built primarily during the period 1859
through 1930. The 700 block of South 10th Street reflects the area's diversity of architectural
styles, including Gothic Revival, Italianate, Queen Anne and Craftsman examples.
Regardless of building type and architectural style, buildings along the street have a notably uniform
setback of twenty feet from the sidewalk and thirty feet from the curb. The street right-of-way in
this block includes wide concrete sidewalks, planting strips with mature street trees, and a
stone curb. There is no indication that the setting has changed appreciably since the house's
period of significance.
