Joseph Hayward, Sr.
204 North 17th Street

The water permit for this property was listed in the name of Joseph Hayward, Sr., the Roadmaster for the Kanasas City, St Joseph and Council Bluffs Railroad, in 1881, the first year he was first listed at this address
The two story front porch was probably added in 1909 when a building pemit was taken out on the property. In spite of this large porch which obscures much of the front facade, the origbal profile render the building a strongly contributing member of a potential historic district in the William T. Harris area of high quality 19th and early 20th Century residential buildings.






Circa 1963
Charles C. Archibald garage w/apartment
211 North 17th Street

This contemporary vernacular building would be an intrusion incompatible with the establishment of an historic district in the Harris Addition area of high quality 19th and early 20th Century residential buildings The structure was built by Charles C. Archibald, who had a heating and plumbing business at the neighboring 1701-1703 Francis street
This utilitarian concrete block structure is capped by a low hipped roof and has paired garage doors on the ground floor. There is an apartment on the second level which is approached by a stairway with landings on the south. The main entry on the south and the windows are rectilinear and finished by flush concrete lintels above.
The south and rear yards are enclosed by a wooden fence.






Circa 1895
Dr. George C. Potter
218 North 17th Street

The 1895 building permit for this residence was listed in the name of William Humphrey who dealt in real estate and did not live here. The 1895 water permit was in the name of Dr. George C. Potter who did live here.
Although this example of the late Queen Anne style has lost it's original full length front porch, it retains several stained glass transoms surface treatment and massing from this period and would contribute significantly to the establishment of an historic district in the William T. Harris neighborhood.
As characteristic of the Queen Anne style, this building has highly irregular massing. The steeply hipped roofs interrupted the east by a wide gable capping deeply a projecting square bay, on the north by a similar 2½ story and wide gable, and on the south by a tripartite two story bay with its own hipped roof. Transoms of the wider rectilinear windows on the first and second story have stained glass. The full length front porch has been removed. The front and south entries now have bracketed canopies
This lot slopes toward the north. A driveway runs along the south side of the building.






Circa 1895
August H. Uhlinger
220 North 17th Street

This house was constructed in 1895 for August H. Uhlinger who was in sales at the Louis Hax Furniture Company. The building permit listed the construction cost as $2,500. This well preserved example of the Queen Anne style would contribute significantly to the establishment of an historic district in the William T. Harris Neighborhood of quality 19th and early 20th Century residential architecture.
This lot slopes toward the north and is enclosed the by a picket fence on the east and on the other sides by chainlink fencing.






Circa 1895
John Baumann
224 North 17th Street

This house was constructed in 1895 for John Baumann, who was listed as "retired" in the City Directory. The construction cost listed on the building permit was $1,800. This well preserved example of the Queen Anne style, along with the coeval structures on this side of the street form a significant grouping that would contribute strongly to the establishment of historic district in the William T. Harris Neighborhood
This lot slopes dramatically north and west and is enclosed along the east and northeast by a 19th Century ornamental fence. The rest of the yard is lined with chainlink fencing.






1704 Jules Street

William A. Moseley, in the harness and saddlery business, was listed at this address only in the 1886 City Directory. The following year he moved one door east to 1710 Jule. Although Sheathed in siding, this Victorian cottage is compatible in period, proportion and use with the high quality 19th and early 20th Century residential buildings found in the neighboring Harris Addition and would contribute to the establishment of an historic district in this area. This corner property is enclosed by chain link fencing. There is a driveway leading to an attached garage on the south side of the house.






1710 Jules Street

William A. Moseley, in the harness and saddlery business, was first listed at this address in 1887. Mr. Moseley lived the preceding year at 1704 Jule, one door west. Although the front porch has been remodeled, this Queen Anne cottage remains largely intact and would contribute to the establishment of an historic district in the Harris Addition area of high quality 19th and early 20th Century residential buildings.






1712 Jules Street

William A. McAllister, a buyer at the Wyeth Hardware and Manufacturing Company, was first listed at this address in the 1881 City Directory. The profile of this house suggests a possibly high quality Queen Anne style building sheathed in siding obscuring architectural detailing and window treatment. As is the house is not architecturally distinguished however, the profile, period and use would contribute to the establishment of an historic district in the Harris Addition area of fine 19th and early 20th Century residential buildings. The property slopes west and is bounded on the east by an alley. In the rear, there is a two-car garage of wood frame with a hipped roof.






Circa 1922
E.A. Ettenson
1716 Jules Street

This bungalow style residence was built in 1922 by David Digan who resided at 220 N. 18th Street.
E.A. Ettenson, a solicitor for the Missouri State Life Insurance Company, was listed at this address in the 1924 City Directory. Though later in period than most of the buildings in the Harris Addition area, this house would contribute to the establishment of an historic district because of its compatible proportion and use.
This property slopes toward the west and is bounded on the west by an alley. In the rear of the building there is a one-ear garage with asphalt shingle siding and a shed roof.






1717-1719 Jules Street

The 1901 building permit is in the name of Jacob Bauman, who was a retired investor residing behind this building at 308 North 18th street. This well intact duplex retains it's original profile and Classical Revival front porch which renders it a strongly contributing member of a possible historic district in the Harris Addition area of high quality 19th and early 20th Century residential buildings. The building is sited on a low bank supported on the west by a concrete retaining wall. An alley runs along the west, beyond which is a concrete parking area for the neighboring church.

Abandoned St Joseph Fire Station
103 North 18th Street

This abandoned fire station and practice tower has had a devastating effect on the surrounding area. The deterioration of the adjacent area has become so advanced that five houses across the street have been torn down. The fire station itself and the tower should be removed before it causes further blight.
This station was built in 1955 and replaced another "Hose House" constructed in 1890, it's cost listed at $7,000.
This corner property slopes south and has a drive along the north leading to an asphalt parking area on the east which is enclosed in chainlink.
Building Permit obtained in 1955, City of St. Joseph, for the new Fire Station,$77,522.






Circa 1922

220 North 18th Street

This house was built in 1922 by David L. Digan, a bookkeeper who worked for James R. Hopkins
James R. Hopkins dealt in wholesale oriental imports located at 306 South 4th Street.
The same year, Mr. Digan had also built the Bungalow style house directly west at 1716 Jules street. Though later in period than most of the buildings in the Harris historic area, this house would contribute to the establishment of an historic district because of its compatible proportion and use.
This corner property slopes in the back toward the west. A concrete driveway runs along the south side of the property to a one-car garage of concrete block with a gabeled roof
The rear yard is enlcosed by a chainlink fence.






Circa 1876
Dr. Samuel A. Richmond, physician
306 North 18th Street

In 1876, Dr. Samuel A. Richmond, a prominent physician, was first person listed at this address. He later moved to another survey property at 209 North 18th street.
Dr. Richmond purchased both properties from Maggie Harris Chapman, the daughter of William Harris for whom the Harris Addition was named.
This formerly high quality Italianate building was been drastically altered, particularly in the treatment of the windows. However, the bracketed cornice line, lintels and massing remain which make restoration possible and render the building a contributing member of a possible Harris Addition historical district.






1801 Jules Street

John J. Harris, son of William T. Harris for whom the Harris Addition was named, was listed at this address in the 1868 City Directory. The full length front porch with a ballustrade, Ionic columns and a bracketed cornice was added between 1897 and 1911 according to Sanborn Insurance maps of those years. Another resident was listed here in the 1881 City Directory, Rufus H. Jordan, who worked for the Wyeth Company. Later the property tranferred from the W.M.Wyeth Co. to James W. Walker, of Steele and Walker wholesale grocers. Mr. Walker made a major addition to the building in 1892. The cost listed on the building permit was $2,000. This landmark calibre building would contribute significantly to the establishment of a historic district in the Harris Addition.






1809 Jules Street

This house was constructed in 1905 for George O. Gruandt, a clerk for the Wyeth Hardware and Manufacturing Company. This high quality early 20th Century Eclectic building, with its well proportioned Neo-Classic and Shingle Style features, would contribute substantially to the establishment of an historic district in the Harris Addition area. The house is sited on a low bank; supported by a low retaining wall on the south. There is a drive along the east side of the property to a two-ear garage of brick with a gabled roof and a shingle sheathed gable end.






1817-1819 Jules Street

On the northwest corner there is polypartite two-story deeply projecting bay. The 1886 water permit for this property was in the name of Vinton Pike, a commercial traveler (traveling salesman)for Furst and Company, a brewery. He was listed in the City Directory as living at 1817 Jule. Before the property tranfered to Mr. Pike in 1890, it was first owned by the W.M. Wyeth Co., then was transferred to Sizzie K. Garrett. George S. Garrett of the Ransone, Garrett and Brewster boot and shoe company was listed as living at 1819 Jule in the 1889 City Directory. Despite the removal of the entry porch shown on the 1897 Sanborn Map, the building is well intact and would contribute strongly to the establishment of an historic district in the Harris Addition area.






1821-1823 Jules Street

This duplex was symmetrically built in mirror image. The east and west facades are broken in the center by two-and-a half story tripartite bays capped by gabled dormers with Palladian windows. The front entries are paired in the middle bay accented by a hipped dormer, and flanked by wide rectilinear windows with leaded glass transoms on the first story and shallowly projecting tripartite bays on the second. The full front porch with a hipped roof is supported by brick piers surmounted by Ionio oapitals. The building permit of 1903 listed a oonstruction cost of $5,000, and was in the name of Gustave Schumacker, a well established grocer. Schumacker did not reside here, so the duplex was probably built as an investment. This turn-of-the-century duplex retains much of its neo-Classical detailing and would contribute strongly to the establiShment of an historic district in the Harris Addition. This corner property slopes dramatically toward the north. There is a driveway in the rear leading to a three-car framed garage with a flat roof and sheathed in asphalt.

1919 Francis

The 1898 building permit for this house is in the name of contractor George D. Calhoon, who did not live here. The building cost listed on the permit was $1,300.

Circa 1898
George Schneider
1921 Francis

This house was built in 1898 the year a building permit was taken out on this property in the name of George Schneider, Vice President of the German American Bank. The 1891 sanborn Insurance Map shows that the house was not built by that year.
This good example of the late Queen Anne style would contribute significantly to the establiShment of an historic district in the Harris Addition of high quality 19th and early 20th Century residential buildings.






Circa 1889
Louis C. Burnes
1923 Francis

This landmark oalibre building was constructed in 1889 as the residence of Louis C. Burnes, a prominent businessman and banker from a prestigious family famous in the state for banking and politics.

Circa 1906
Bullock Family Chapel
1901-1903 Jules

Constructed in 1906, the building on the west has a flat roof with a corbelled parapet. Raised brick coursing is used to articulate the first and second stories. The windows are rectilinear. The metal framed storefront is mostly sheathed in contemporary siding. A one-story garage connects the two buildings. The later constructed eastern building also has a corbelled parapet. Corbelling is used as well between the first and second stories on the front facade. Round arched windows with radiating brick surrounds line the second story.
The western building block was constructed in 1906 to house the pharmacy and apartment of Henry W. Shorow. The eastern block was similarly built as a combination store and apartment by Mrs. A. Mack in 1908. According to the 1891 Sanborn Map, these two store- .... fronts were the first commercial structures in the area and were located across Jule Street from the Garfield School built in 1882 and razed in 1932. By 1932, the 2 businesses were Lloyd A. Ransopher's drugs & Gorden Gladys Beauty Shop
Although incompatible in massing and use, these buildings form a long-standing component of the neighborhood and have sympathetic architectural features which would contribute to the establishment an historic district in the Harris Addition area. This corner property slopes dramatically toward the north.






Circa 1933
Beaty Hy-Klas #39 Grocery Store
1906 Jules

The building permit for Beaty's Grocery store is in the name of Charles E. Beaty and is dated 1933. The permit also listed a construction cost of $5,000. Substantial additions were made in 1941 and 1955. This site was previously occupied by the Garfield School which was built in 1882 and razed in 1932.
Although this building is a commercial intrusion in the predominantly 19th and early 20th Century residential Harris Addition area, the height and building material this structure would be compatible with the establishment of an historic district in the area. The building is surrounded by parking areas on the north and east which stretch to the corners of Jule street at 19th and 20th streets.
The truck loading area is on the extreme eastern end of the front facade. Tom's Hy Klas Groceries resided in the building after Beaty closed






Circa 1940
Amos D. McPhail Chiropractor
1911 Jules

This building was constructed in 1940 at a listed permit cost of $3,000 by Amos D. McPhail as his chiropractor office. Although architecturally undistinguished in itself and much later in period than most buildings in the Harris Addition, this building is compatible in proportion and profile and would not detract from the establishment of an historic district in the area. This property slopes slightly toward the east. A brick sidewalk runs along the front.






Circa 1937
Jack M. Keefe
203 North 19th Street

This house was built for Jack M. Keefe, a salesman, in 1937; the price listed on the building permit was $1,400. Two years later, he built the house directly south at 1901 Francis and moved into this larger house. Although this house is not architecturally distinguished in itself, its proportion and use are compatible with the establiShment of an historic district in the Harris Addition area of high quality 19th and 20th Century residential buildings. This level lot has a driveway on the north side. The house is located behind the neighborhood grocery store.






Circa 1881
George W. Sargent
102 South 19th Street

In 1902, at a cost of $1,200, a large addition was made to the rear of the house and the original front entry porch was replaced by a curvilinear front porch stretching across the entire facade.
Although the full front porch has been removed and the segmentally arched window openings have been altered, the building retains its original profile and cornice treatment which render it a strongly contributing member of the proposed historic district in the Harris Addition.
The building is sited on a bank supported by a low retaining wall. This corner property is bounded on the west by an alley.






Circa 1898
James Morton
108 South 19th Street

This beautifully preserved and excellent example of the late Queen Anne style would contribute significantly to the establishment of an historic district in the Harris Addition which has many high quality 19th and 20th Century residential buildings.
This house was bullt for the Morton family in 1898. The building permit was in the name of James Morton, however, he was not listed as residing here.

DUPLEX
2015 Jules

This building was built in 1911 by Samuel Hassenbusch who did not reside here. Mr. Hassenbusch built the two buildings to the east (2017 and 2019 Jule) the following year. This high quality early Twentieth Century building is well intact and would contribute strongly to the establishment of an historic district in the Harris Addition area.

David Atkinson
2016 Jules

This house was built in 1901 as the residence of David Atkinson who was listed as "retired" in the contemporary City Directory. This late Queen Anne building has been diminished by the application of wooden and artificial siding, however, it retains its original Queen Anne profile, fanlights and projecting bay which render it a contributing member of the proposed Harris Addition historic district.

This building was built in 1912 by Samuel Hassenbusch who did not reside here. Mr. Hassenbusch built the buildings on either side of this one, 2015 Jule in 1911 and 2019 Jule in 1912. This high quality early Twentieth Century building is well intact and could contribute strongly to the establishment of an historic district in the Harris Addition area.
The hipped roof is broken by hipped dormers, facing west and south and a shed dormer facing east. The front entry is flanked by sidelights and sheltered by a two-story entry porch on a brick base with brick piers supporting an enclosed frame room on the second story. The windows are rectilinear. On the front facade lintels are formed by raised brick. Raised brick was used also for string coursing that runs along the top of the second story.
This building is sited on a high bank.
