Mullanphy on KMOV and Post Dispatch Commentary Page

Day 9 of “45 Days in Old North”

News about the Mullanphy building is popping up all over the place. For the second day in a row the Post-Dispatch has covered the Mullanphy preservation efforts, this time with a guest commentary: Mullanphy Emigrant Home welcomed and helped our ancestors.

Ray Preston of KMOV Channel 4 reported on the story on that station’s 6 p.m. newscast with some nice video footage from inside the building. The KMOV website also features some “raw video” of the building: Group hopes to restore historic building, revive declining neighborhood.

Meanwhile, we continue to make progress on the fund raising front. The Society of Architectural Historians have let us know that they will be making a $1,000 contribution to the cause, and we received a $5,000 no-interest loan from Landmarks Association of St. Louis to cover some of the immediate stabilization work necessitated by last week’s storm damage.
