HOTEL ROBIDOUX
5th & Francis

This magnificent hotel opened on September 15, 1908

Hotel Robidoux was imploded on June 13,1976

Many St. Joseph residents lived in the hotel year round

Their Black Angus room was noted for it's fabulous steaks & lobster dinners

They used to have great record hops in the 2nd floor ballroom sponsored by KUSN radio

We knocked the plaster off the ceiling below by stomping one night to the Mexican Hat Rock

The hotel management no longer allowed the record hop to be held in the hotel so it was moved to the Eagles Lodge on North 10th St

In 1978, Robidoux Center, a modern, multimillion dollar, 6 story office building replaced the hotel. American National Bank, & other businesses occupy the new building

PATEE HOUSE MUSEUM
1202 Penn

Patee House was a hotel three times, a women's college twice, and a shirt and overall factory for almost 80 years, before it became a museum. During the Civil War, the provost marshall's office was located in the building, as well as the Union Army recruiting office. In 1865, when the war left the hotel in a failing financial condition, John Patee held a lottery, selling tickets \i. throughout the U.S. for $2 each. When the winning ticket was drawn April 28, 1865, Patee won back his own hotel.
Patee House was a hotel from 1858 to 1865, a Methodist women's college from 1865 to 1869, a hotel again from 1869 to 1874, and a Baptist women's college from 1875 to 1881. It was called World's Hotel in 1881, with Dr. S. A. Richmond's epileptic sanitarium located on the top floor. During this period, Jesse James was killed April 3, 1882, on the hill just a block north of Patee House at 1318 Lafayette street. His widow was interviewed at the hotel the next morning.
The building became a shirt factory in 1885. During World Wars I and II millions of army uniforms were made here. Patee House was vacated in 1957, and stood empty for five years while vandals ruined the interior. The Patee House is now owned by the Patee House Historical Association with a museum in operation since 1965.
John Patee opened his luxurious four-story brick hotel in 1858
It was built in 1858 as a luxury hotel
Patee House served as the Pony Express headquarters from 1860 to 1861
Pony Express operators Russell, Majors and Waddell had their main office here
The Pony Express riders stayed in the hotel
During the Civil War, the Union Army occupied the building
It was used as their Provost Marshal's office and holding war trials in the ballroom
When the Union Army took over the hotel, John Patee was backing the Confederacy
In 1882, it was called World's Hotel

The west facade with a Colonial Revival design was added in 1901. It is dominated by two projecting square bays flanking a recessed entry surmounted by a fanlight. Please see the attachment which gives an 1889 view of the St. Charles. Since this time the Mansard roof of the original design has been removed. However, the peaked lintels etched with curvilinear motifs from this period remain intact on the north facade.
The landmark calibre St. Charles Hotel was opened in 1880 and continuously operated under the same name. A contemporary history said that large additions (35 rooms plus) were made to the original building at that time. However, there was no hotel by this site name or on this site the years preceding 1880 in the City Directories and a 1910 description listed only a total of 45 rooms, so the building referred to was probably the boarding house of Mary E. Dunoan on the southeast corner of Fifth and Charles, listed in the City Directory as early as 1872 and through the 1870's.
In 1880, the hotel was originally named the St Charles House
Between 1880 and 1937, the hotel was renamed the St Charles Hotel
During a 5 year period from 1937-1941, the St. Charles Hotel
was renamed as HOTEL MILNER, see photo #6
Why it changed names for a brief period in late 1930's is unknown
After 1941, it was was renamed once again as the St. Charles Hotel
Even though it was closed, the St Charles Hotel was the last historic downtown hotel still standing in 2010
Some scenes in the Paper Moon movie were filmed here in the 1970's
The hotel sat closed and empty for many years
After sitting empty for many years, it was sold & torn down in 2010

ST FRANCIS HOTEL
605 Francis

The St Francis Hotel, formerly the Heaton House, was opened October 1, 1880, by James Herson.
It was pleasantly located on the corner of Sixth and Francis Streets
It was a well kept and highly popular house.
An addition of 45x52 feet three and a half stories high was made.
This rendered the entire depth of the building at 120 feet.
The street car line turned at the corner near which this hotel stood
St Francis Hotel was originally located on the northeast corner of 6th & Francis, across the street from Townsend & Wall
It was torn down and a new Katz Drug Store was built in it's place
The Katz Drug Store later became Skaggs Drugs
Skaggs then moved to East Hills Shopping Center
I'm not sure what business is currently in the old Katz building
Skaggs closed their drug store at East Hills several years ago

SAUNDERS HOUSE
3rd Street

Among the more prominent of the early settlers of St. Joseph was John Saunders, Sr.
Mr. Saunders was born in Richmond Virginia, Oct. 10,1797.
In 1843 he settled in St. Joseph, which he continued to make his home up to the period of his death
His death occurred on October 10,1870, on his seventy third birthday.
In 1850, he built for a residence, what is now a portion of a large brick building known as the Saunders House on Third Street.
It was at one time occupied by a school.
In 1858, an extensive additon was made to the building and it was opened by the proprietor as a hotel.
Richard and John Saunders, Jr.sons of the builder and owner of this house, who were then living in Nodaway County, Missouri, came down to St. Joseph in 1862 and bought out their father.
They continued to keep a highly popular house here till April 1877, when they sold to Moore & Stall.
In September, 1880, Mr. Moore died and the house was conducted in a highly popular style by C.G. Stall.

MARTIN'S "Y" MOTEL
3510 North 71 Highway (North Belt Highway)
All Buildings Were Razed in April 2016

The "Y" BBQ & Roadhouse sat on the town's outskirts, the junction of North 169 and 71 Highways
This is now one of the busiest intersections in the city and the area is really developing with a new shopping center, Lowes, Walmart, Sams Club, large movie complex, resturants and other retail businesses that opened in 2005 & 2006 (called The Shoppes)
The "Y" Motel restaurant housed several slot machines and had 10 cabins in back, which were called, tourist courts. Many of the cabins were still standing and were occupied by small businesses until 2016

On the south side, a filling station used to stand. The building burned down in 1939 or 1940

Across the highway, where the Mo Highway Patrol now stands, was the Thames Stadium, ball field and race track

The Ogden Restaurant was across the highway on the northeast corner, where St Joseph Tobacco now stands
During the summer of 2016, the entire "Y" Motel complex was razed

PONY EXPRESS MOTEL
Belt Highway & Frederick Avenue

Once a Best Western motel having 59 units at it's peak, in Oct/Nov 2006 it was torn down to make room for an upcoming strip mall/shopping center
It was located directly across from where Burger King now stands.
The Pony Express Restaurant & Captain's Lounge was in the furthest building up the hill. We stopped there for drinks on our wedding night, Sept 23, 1966
The 2 end photos show the Captain's Lounge and the Restaurant interiors
Built in 1955, the Pony Express Motel sign with its galloping neon rider welcomed travelers driving south into St. Joseph from places such as Council Bluffs and Nebraska City.
In late 2006, the motel was torn down to build a strip mall, and the new property owners tried to sell the sign on eBay. Civic leaders convinced the owners to instead donate it to the Pony Express National Museum in town, which spent about $22,000 to restore and move the sign about four miles to a small park behind the old Pony Express stables. Its neon rider, with much fanfare, was turned on again at dusk on October 11, 2008.
At the time it was noted that the Pony Express Motel sign had found an ideal home, as the stables had been a kind of 19th century motel for Pony Express horses.
