What We Do

Mullanphy Emigrant Home

The twice-hit Mullanphy Emigrant Home, which made it onto Landmarks Association's 2006 "Most Endangered" list, has been stabilized and preserved for future development thanks to support from hundreds of individuals, businesses and organizations who care about preserving our city's historic, cultural, and architectural heritage.  The building is a last remaining physical link to the epic migration of millions of new Americans who built our city and streamed westward toward the new frontier. A safe haven for immigrants getting their start, the Mullanphy Emigrant Home is the primary focus of one of the three National Register Historic Districts within Old North St. Louis.

The 148-year-old Home anchors the Mullanphy National Register Historic District, which links revitalized Downtown to the heart of Old North St Louis. Old North holds cherished memories for generations of St Louisans whose families settled here as immigrants and established themselves as Americans. The solid brick homes erected by the pioneers of the 1800s remained standing through good times and bad as keepers of our shared history. Those very buildings are now drawing a new generation of pioneering St Louisans back into Old North, as a safer, revitalized city offers a modern, eco-friendly and urban way of life.

Thank you to the hundreds of individuals, businesses, and organizations who supported ONSLRG's campaign to preserve the Mullanphy Emigrant Home.  ONSLRG was able to re-build the collapsed walls and stabilize and secure the building for future development because of financial contributions from too many individuals to name here, and contributions and loans from several organizations and companies, including Landmarks Association of St. Louis, Society of Architectural Historians, Regional Housing & Community Development Alliance, AIA - St. Louis, St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee, etc.  The re-building of the south wall wouldn't have been possible without major contributions of labor, equipment, supplies, and other professional assistance from the Masonry Contractors Association and several of their contractors, and oversight by E. M. Harris Construction Co., with architectural plans prepared by Rosemann & Associates.
