    Circa 1891
    Rev. John G. Kost House
    822 Main Street

    A building permit was issued to Phillip Kost in 1887 for a residence at this address, however, research shows that this residence was built prior to 1887. The 1877 City Directory lists Rev. John G. Kost living at this address. The first verifiable residents were Rev. John G. Kost in 1877,and Phillip Kost a musician and music teacher. Both Phillip and Rev. John Kost were still living at this address in 1891. The 1887 building permit was probably a permit for an addition rather than a residence.






    Circa 1883
    Augustus Saltzman
    905 Main Street

    A building permit was issued for this residence in 1897 to A. Saltzman. However, research has shown that Augustus Saltzman had been living at this address as early at 1883. Augustus Saltzman, a prominent St. Joseph attorney and judge was first listed as living at this address in the 1883 City Directory. He was still listed as living there in 1899.
    The building permit was probably issued for an addition to the residence, rather than a new residence. Judge Augustus Saltzman was a well known citizen of St. Joseph. He came to St. Joseph in 1850. Judge Saltzman's father, who was a carpenter and contractor by trade, assisted in erecting many of the older buildings in St. Joseph.
    In 1865,Judge Saltzman engaged in the drug business, but soon retired from the business after receiving from the County Court an appointment as justice of the peace. He was actually filling the vacancy of Felix Robidoux. It was at this time he began studying law and was with the law firm of Hon. J. C. Parker, Col. James Strong and Jeff Chandler. He held the position as justice of the peace for 16 consecutive years.
    In 1872 he was appointed chief of the St. Joseph fire department and in 1882 was elected city attorney. In 1896 he was elected county judge.
    He built the steamboat "Saltzman" and ran it on the river for several years.

    FRANK SOMMER HOME
    The Cracker House
    914 Main Street

    It has been difficult to establish a specific construction date for this residence. The abstract on the house shows the property being sold in the late 1850's for a considerable about of money to Shepard Fales. In the 1859-60 City Directory Shepard Fales is listed as living on Michel between 2nd and Main, which would not be the location of this house.
    The first verifiable resident was Frank L. Sommer in 1879. F. L. Sommer & Co. was a cracker manufacturers and wholesale confectioners.
    In 1981 Augustus F. Braun was listed as living at this address. There have been several rumors or stories attached to this house including the cupola was used to watch for slaves and was built in order to get a good view of the river. Also there is suppose to be a tunnel which was either used by the nearby brewery or for slaves to escape. The present owner has stated that there is a lock up room in the basement.
    This residence is a good example of the centered gabled ltalianate style. This style can be evidenced by the compound floor plan, front facing centered gable with prominent central extension below, large eaves with brackets dominating the cornice on the house, window crowns, large pane glazing in paired doors and the presence of a cupola on the house

Buildings were added to this complex over the years and the bottling works became an extensive factory. When Mr. Fuelling first occupied this site, "the only beer put up by him was that made in the city". His business consisted of the manufacturing of beer, soda water and mineral water. His vinegar and cider works were the largest in the city at the time.
    Mr. Fuelling came to St. Joseph in 1860. He ran the Nurmings Brewery for a year and in 1869 purchased an interest in the soda water factory and in 1871 bought the whole establishment. Soon after his purchase he moved to the location of Franklin and Levee to establish his own business.

    913 North 2nd Street

    The Vosteen-Hauck House, a late 19th century townhouse duplex constructed with attic and basement in the High Victorian Italianate style, is located in the city of St. Joseph, Missouri in an area of rapidly changing use. To the east lies an area of mixed residential and commercial use while to the south the factory of the Wire Rope Corporation of America sprawls, the construction of which obliterated all of the old neighborhood and the entire southern reach of Second Street. To the north are the remains of the Second Street neighborhood, a declining residential area. To the west, across Second Street, lies a vacant lot which will be drastically altered shortly by the creation of a massive ramp system for the newly constructed Interstate 229, further to the west.
    Jacob Hauck, businessman and founder of the Hauck Milling Company. This company operated on Second Street, next door to the Vosteen-Hauckh house @ 913 North 2nd street for 65 years from 1865 to its closing about 1930.

    Erby Martin Felling worked @ Hauck Milling as a Miller per 1914 City Directory listing Son of Petronella Nellie Alders Felling.
    Some of the above information was supplied by Linda Alders
    The house and the store next door no longer exists
    The Wire Rope Corporation consumed the buildings

    Edward Lee House
    1102 North 2nd Street

    There was no documentation that can substantiate the exact date of this home, yet some of the particular features of this home, i. e., fenestration and overall massing relate to an early construction period. The first verifiable resident was Edward E. Lee in 1899, a marble cutter.
    This home was originally constructed as an I-House with its main elevation facing south. At a later but unknown date, the home was altered with two main additions; one to the west and one to the north. The main entry was also changed to the east facade. Tax records indicates that in 1871 this property was extant.

    Circa 1861-1868
    Thomas Ritchie House
    1201 North 2nd Street

    This residence was probably built by Thomas H. Ritchie who came to St. Joseph in 1857 and engaged in the brickmaking business. During the early 1870s, Ritchie served as City Marshall. This house was constructed sometime between 1861-1868.






    Circa 1868
    Augustus W. Meisner House

    Circa 1908
    Conrad Herner House
    1215 North 2nd Street

    The first verifiable occupant (1909) was Conrad Herner, a salesman with Wyeth, Hardware and Manufacturing Company. This home is still occupied by the Herner family. The home was apparently built for Conrad Herner in 1908.

    George W. Pinger House
    1217 North 2nd Street

    The first verifiable occupant of this residence was George W. Pinger in 1901, a worker at Swift Packing Company.






    Circa 1897
    Felix De Fonds House
    1220 North 2nd Street

    The building permit for this address indicates that a barn was built for Felix De Fonds in 1894. It is very plausible that there was a house already in existence at this location and that De Fonds subsequently constructed a barn next to his home. Then in 1896, De Fonds may have made an addition to the residence. The first verifiable resident was Felix De Fonds in 1897, a shipping clerk with the J. W. Hat Company.

    John Bauer's Matress Manufacturing
    315 Robidoux

    According to indications on the Sanborn Maps of 1888 and 1897, this frame building was a rear extension of 502 North 4th Street building, the residence of John Bauer.
    A "T" shaped rear section was gone and another appeared free standing at at 315 Robidoux
    The building permit of 1893 to "move building" taken out by John Bauer further supports this surmise. Bauer earlier took out a building permit to construct a "barn" in 1891 which was later adjoined to this structure to house his matress manufacturing enterprise.
    This vernacular structure would contribute to the establishment of an historic district

    This duplex was built as the residence of Charles A. Shoup, the vice-president of the Regnier and Shoup Crockery Company of which had a fine reputation of selling high quality porcelains
    The wide front porch with Doric columns was probably added in 1899 by Mr. Shoup. Only a small front entry porch is shown on the 1897 Sanborn Map.
    Otherwise, this solid Richardsonian Romanesque duplex has been little altered and would be a strongly contributing member of the 19th Century Robidoux Hill historic area

    Henry Voss House
    1324 North 3rd Street

    The 1879/80 City Directory lists Henry Voss residing at the north west corner of 3rd and Rosine. In 1883 he is listed at 1324 North 3rd Street, which is actually the south west corner, its present location. It is possible that Voss may have lived across the street in a more modest home, then later, he built this larger residence. In addition, the 1883 Sanborn Map shows a different footprint at this location. The 1888 map shoes the footprint of the present building. Henry Voss was president of the Henry Voss Wall Paper Company.

A front porch was added in 1907.






    Circa 1888
    FREDERICK W. DUMKE
    511-513 North 4th

    This duplex was built as the residence of Frederick W. Dumke of Dumke and Hund, manufacturers and bottlers of beer. Mr. Dumke lived at 511 N. 4th st. The configuratlon of the building's front with two lateral bays flanking a recessed central entry porch remains the same as it was on the 1888 Sanborn map. Although stucco sheathing is an apparent later addition, the structure retains a high degree of its architectural integrity and would contribute greatly to the establishment of an historical district in the Robidoux Hill area
    The structure is located on a high bank supported by a coursed, rock-faced stone retaining wall on the west side. A vacant lot lies south to the corner.






    Circa 1875

    It is located in the Robidoux Hill Historic District.






    Circa 1886
    MIRAM LUCKETT
    518 North 4th Street

    This building was apparently constructed in 1886 when Miram Luckett took out a water permit on this property. This is supported by the building's absence on the 1883 Sanborn map and its appearance on the one of 1888. Miram Luckett's name appears as we1l on the Buchanan County ownership list in 1890; however the city directory listed Mr. Luckett residence at another address and did not list a profession for him.

    Circa 1885
    W. M. Whimple Residence
    613 North 4th Street

    A rectangular dwelling was on this site as early as 1883. The present structure, similarily sited appears to be a major alteration of the existing structure which transformed it into the Queen Anne style with the creation of projecting bays and deep entry recesses. This transformation took place before 1888 and most likely was undertaken by W. M. Whimple of Whimple and Gilpin, a book and stationery store, who was first listed at this address in 1885
    There is a steep rock faced stone retaining wall to the east. The building is sited on a low bank. A 19th century wrought iron fence runs along the west part of the property

    Alexander Kemp, whose profession was not listed in the City Directory, bought the property from Craig the same year, then sold 1t to Mullen in 1858. One would not expect men like Mr. Craig or Mr. Kemp to live here because the area was settled by laborers. This building was shown as a duplex on the 1883 Sanborn map

    711 North 4th Street

    The core of this building dates back to 1859 when Samuel A. Wheeler, a brickmaker, acquired the property and was first listed at this address in the City Directory. Unfortunately, its architectural merit has been obscoured by the installed siding.






    Circa 1900
    George Wilmeth Residence
    713 North 4th Street

    This vernacular, gabled brick structure may be the one that appeared on this site on the 1868 map of St. Joseph. The present front facade that masks the body of the structure seems to have been built 1922
    Due to this later front facade, the architectural integrity of the building has been lessened however, the building is compatible in use, scale and building material with many of the predominantly 19th Century residences in the Robidoux Hill area.






    Circa 1887

The subsequent owner of the prominent John Donovan,Jr., President of the German American Bank and Manager of the Stockyards made addition in 1895 of the front porch and southern bay and in 1901 of the northern turret

Organized in 1853, his business was known as the Henry Groneweg Cigar and-Tobacco Co., and later it became the St. Joseph Tobacco Co., which is still in existence, but is no longer a manufacturing firm.
    The cigar manufacturing business was an important one in the latter half of the 19th and early part of the 20th century in St. Joseph, and was primarily operated by persons of German extraction. Mr. Groneweg purchased the home at 518 N. 7th between 1909 and 1912 and lived there until his death.
    This is a brick structure built circa 1880 in an Italianate style. A deep horizontal cornice overhangs the front building line, and below the cornice is a frieze with dentils. The one story raised porch has an entablature with an applied saw-tooth motif in the frieze. Its roof is supported on paired chamfered columns with car center detailing at the base and capitals. The porch rail is supported by scroll-work balusters. Window openings on the main facade have arched hoods of raised brick with label stops, which end at the impost level.

    The eclectic mixture of motifs on what is essentially a symmetrical Georgian Revival facade has witnessed little alteration over the years. The exterior is unchanged except for removal of a cornice.
    The rusticated stone quoins are very pronounced as well as the pediments of the central bay of the main facade on the 1st and 2nd levels. The pediment on the second story shows paired Italianate brackets beneath the cornice. This pediment and cornice have a carved motif in the dentil band. The pediment over the porch has imbricated shingles, typical of the Queen Anne Style, and a denticulated raking cornice.
    The porch roof is supported on Tuscan columns. The High Victorian Italianate window and door hoods have projecting key stones; all are embellished with intaglio carving, and corbelled label stops.

    He became senior partner sometime later and the business was later run by his son, Ernest, and his grandson, Charles. The business was sold by family interest in 1943, but continues in operation to this day under the name of Chase Candy Co., and still produces the famous Cherry Mash candy bar.
    The Chase-McClain House, 614 N. 7th, a Second Empire style residence for the 1870's, was built for Dr. George Washington Chase, the founder of the Chase Candy Company. Although it is not a mansion in size, it was constructed as a stately residence with many special architectural features. Projecting from the mansard roof, the wall dormers on the second story are covered by either semi-circular hoods or triangular pediments, with engaged pilasters flanking the windows. The windows are four over four light and appear to be original.
    On the first story there is a bay window on the east side of the house. The main roof and the bay window cornices contain heavily detailed brackets. The windows in the bay, which are attenuated and form an arcade motif, are separated by cabled, engaged columns with a panelled frieze above.

Supported by columns, the small pedimented porch roof with striking returns covers an entrance which has a stained glass transom and the original door and lock. Besides this obviously later addition, there appears to be an addition on the south side of the house, but it is covered with stucco and is therefore not prominent, and an alteration on the northeast corner of the house to form an exterior apart ment entrance. The window openings are all 9 over 1 except for a large oval beveled glass window with a semi-circular head on the north facade at the landing level of the stairs. On the interior, the chandeliers are original and the four fireplaces have their original mantels

    E. H. Lindsay Duplex
    635-637 North 8th Street

    The E.H Lindsay Duplex. 635-637 N. 8th, built in 1905 shows some 'similarities' to its neighbor due to the fact that the contractor, D. D. Semple, was the same for both structures. Here, however, the asymmetrical facade of this duplex is accentuated by the Flemish gable wall dormer on the west facade which has an ornate parapet. A second story oval window is embellished with exaggerated keystones on cross axis. Alterations to the structure include the enclosed porch at the second story and the enclosure of part of the first story porch. This porch is supported by both Doric columns and rectangular brick columns.

    Ketcham-Wallace-Orr-Ide House
    603-605 North 8th Street

    The Ketcham-Wallace-Orr-Ide House, 603-605 N. 8th, is an example of the eclecticism of this period. Built in 1894 by Mr. Ketcham, its predominant motifs are from the Georgian Revival style. The palladian window in the projecting central bay has brick surrounds; other windows have soldier arches. The two eyebrow dormers call attention to the pediment, in the middle of which is an elliptical window with star-shaped muntins.
    The pediment is covered with wood shingles and has brackets in the raking cornice. Asymmetry is introduced by the two story bay window that forms the southwest third of the main facade. The porch, running the full length of the main facade, is supported by paired Tuscan columns. A wide plain frieze and architrave are predominant at the porch and eave line
    A barn to the east of the residence has been converted to a three car garage and is a non-conforming structure.

    537 North 8th Street

    Mr. Herschel Bartlett commissioned Eckel and Mann to build a home at 537 N. 8th in 1888. A large single window in the stairwell of this home is thought to be of Paul H. Wolff's design, before he established his own business. Mr. Bartlett arrived in St. Joseph in 1862 along with his three brothers. To gether they formed the Bartlett Brothers Mortgage Company. They built the firm into the largest farm mortgage business in the area by bringing Eastern capital into the St. Joseph agricultural area.
    The Herschel Bartlett - Parker House. 537 N. 8th, was built in 1888 and designed by Harvey Ellis. Irregularity of plan and massing, and variety of color and texture characterize this Queen Anne house. There is a great deal of terra cotta decorative trim used in the belt course of the tower, as well as under the cornice. This rich trim is also found around windows, on the chimneys, and as panels on the tower. The chimneys are tall with elaborate decoration, including corbelled brickwork.
    The projecting gables at attic level have wood ornamentation, imitative of naif timbering, and are supported by fan brackets. A bay window sits below each of these gables. There is an octagonal tower on the southwest corner capped with a steeply pitched roof and a small copper finial similar to the one which tops the hip roof over the main block of the residence.
    The front porch has a small pediment with terra cotta detailing over the main entrance, and is supported by Tuscan columns which rest on brick pedestals. A large two story carriage house with the same materials sits at the rear of the lot, east of the residence.

Mr. Priebe was a bookkeeper for the wholesale hardware company of J. H. Robinson. Neither Priebe nor Robison resided here.
    This building retains it's original cornice, window treatment and massing which would render it significantly as a oontributing memmber of a potential annex to the Hall Street Historic District.

    Ninth street was still ungraded in 1868 as shown on a map of that year. The duplex was probably constructed in 1880 when a water permit was taken out on the property. The name on the permit was A. E. Hove who did not reside here, so it was most likely built as an investment.
    The Italianate roofline and massing, aa well as the handsome double baluatraded front porch renders this building a strongly contributing member of potential annex to the Hall street Historic District.

    Alois Herbert Double House
    620 South 10th Street

    The Alois Herbert Double House at 620 South loth Street is locally significant under C in the area of ARCHITECTURE. This building is representative of the growth of St. Joseph's entrepreneurs' success and their building of residences away from the city center in the hills overlooking the original town plat. Alois Herbert immigrated to America from Bavaria and was a boot and shoemaker by trade. Having been successful in his profession, Alois Herbert moved to Saint Joseph and was able to build himself a one-and-a-half story brick double house in 1851. His ability to build this house is also significant of a working class tradesman who had the disposable income to construct and own income-producing property. The Alois Herbert Double House is also as an example of the Property Type: Greek Revival. This building is a good example of the Greek Revival style in St. Joseph. The Period of Significance of the Alois Herbert Double House is 1851, the date of construction.

    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.

    The Browne Flats
    1214-1216 Frederick
    Samuel Lima Home
    1214-1216 Frederick

    These town houses were erected by Francis Browne, who was an officer of Nave-McCord Wholesale Grocers. A native of Ireland he came to the United States in 1851, and to St. Joseph in 1857
    In early directories this tract is shown as his residence, but by time he constructed this building, he had built a mansion
    Francis Browne was a major benefactor of the Convent of the Sacrate Heart.
    The Browne Flats (1214-1216 Frederick Avenue ) The Browne Flats sit approximately three feet to the east of the Kelley Flats with the same streetscape setback. Again, due to the sloping terrain of the lot, the first-story facade of the Browne Flats is at street level with a full walkout basement at the rear. Like the Kelley Flats, the Browne Flats were originally built of red brick, but have been painted white, which has weathered badly. The two units of the Browne Flats are stepped in orientation and facade design. The facade entrances to both units are located in the center bay with a window above and flanked by a three-sided bay on the left and a two-sided bay on the right. The side of both bays contains a window on both stories
    The entrance to 1214 Frederick retains its historic shed roof hood. The entrance at 1216 Frederick does not. Access to the facade entrances in obtained by a non-historic concrete-slab platform and steps. Like the Kelley Flats, the Browne Flats feature simple corbelled brick string courses and a water table between stories. Unlike the Kelley Flats, the facade of the Browne Flats is divided by corbelled brick plaster on the second story.

    Jesse James Home
    1318 Lafayette Street

    In November, 1881, Jessie James (alias Tom Howard), cattle buyer and his family appeared in St. Joseph. They spent two nights at the Patee House and then rented a house at 21st and Lafayette. On Christmas Eve 1881, the "Howard" family moved into the house at 1318 Lafayette, owned by Henrietta Saltzman, for which they paid $14 a month rent. There were in addition to Jesse and Zee, two children, Jesse Edwards and Mary Jones, in the family.
    Why the James house was moved to Patee House
    For several reasons, it was decided it was not practical to place the house at 1318 Lafayette. First, it could never be in the original location, because the hill has been graded.
    Second, a 30-foot drop is now in the "back yard" and would be a hazardous area for visitors.
    Thirdly, the lot is still at the crest of a hill on a narrow street surrounded by private homes. It is not zoned for museum purposes, and there would be almost no on-street parking, and no place for off-street parking.
    For these reasons, it was decided to place the James Home on property adjoining the Patee House Museum. For those who want to see where the house originally stood, the Pony Express Historical Association has seeded the 1318 Lafayette site, and constructed a rustic fance across the back, making it into a private mini-park.

    C. L. Rutt
    603 South 14th Street

    Stylistic features indicate this house was constructed c. 1885. While no building permits are listed for this lot before 1920, the house is clearly listed on both the 1897 and 1911 Sanborns.
    Minor changes were made to the rear (porches) as indicted on the Sanborns. The stucco finish was presumably added in 1931, when a permit for the then large sum of $1,000 was granted to C. L. Rutt.
    The building retains a high degree of integrity, and is significant as a representation of the continued use of a late 19th century dwelling updated with early 20th century exterior treatments and features.






    Circa 1880
    Caroline Wieman
    607 South 14th Street

    Elizabeth Sorge and Oscar J. Schmitz occupied the house in 1911. Benjamin Skolnik was listed for 1926.
