Mullanphy Funds Being Put to Good Use

Day 16 of “45 Days in Old North”

As the following photos show, construction crews from E. M. Harris Construction Co. were on the job today at the Mullanphy Emigrant Home building. Thanks to the generosity of about 120 individuals, businesses, and organizations, the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group has collected over $20,000 in the two weeks since the most recent damage to the Mullanphy building. The fundraiser at the Bottleworks on Saturday evening generated approximately $13,500 from everybody who joined us there or sent in a check with their regrets, and we were thrilled to receive a $5,000 loan from Landmarks Association last week.

We still have a long way to go toward raising the funds necessary to cover all of the shoring and re-building costs, but the outpouring of community support has lifted our spirits, strengthened our resolve, and given us the means to pay for the material and labor associated with the immediate stabilization.

Thank you to all who’ve contributed to the cause so far. There are too many of you to name in this space, but watch for a more thorough acknowledgement of our supporters coming soon at
