Reminder: Your Chance to Help Save Mullanphy Tomorrow Evening

Day 12 of “45 Days in Old North”

The photo above shows the Mullanphy building in 1890 when used as a public school. This photo is courtesy of St. Louis Public Schools and is not to be reproduced or used without their approval.

Five and a half months ago Old North St. Louis Restoration Group took a leap of faith and purchased the endangered Mullanphy Emigrant Home so that the landmark could be preserved for a future redevelopment. Many advocates of historic preservation offered moral support and words of encouragement - but now we need more than words and pats on the back.

In the year since the original damage, ONSLRG has benefited greatly from contributed legal and architectural services from the Bryan Cave law firm and Rosemann & Associates architectural firm. E.M. Harris Construction Co. has donated project management and professional services, but we still have had to pay for acquisition costs, structural engineering reports, and for costs associated with the late January stabilization and shoring, specifically for supplies, equipment, and labor from subcontractors.

To help us raise the funds needed to pay for these costs and for repairing the additional damage from the March 31, 2007, storm, we invite you to bring a contribution to our fundraiser tomorrow (Saturday) evening from 5 to 7:30 at the Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood. See the flyer for details at www.SaveMullanphy.org.

WHAT'S NEW IN OLD NORTH

Welcome to the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group's blog. What's New in Old North chronicles the dramatic transformation under way in the neighborhood of Old North St. Louis. As a neighborhood just north of Downtown St. Louis, Old North is becoming a dynamic urban village of new and historic homes, a landmark eating establishment, beautiful community gardens, and a diverse, friendly, and engaged community.
