Mullanphy Once Again on Missouri Preservation’s "Most Endangered" List

Day 44 of “45 Days in Old North”

We went straight from celebrating the Landmarks Association “Most Enhanced Award” for the North Market Place Apartments back to working on the Mullanphy Emigrant Home, which will no doubt receive a “Most Enhanced Award” in a couple years. The first step, though, is preserving the building so that it can survive for a later redevelopment. To help us spread the word about the significance of the building and the urgency of receiving support for our efforts, Missouri Preservation has officially designated the Mullanphy building one of its 10 “Most Endangered Historic Places” in the State of Missouri for the second year in a row.

To further emphasize their support for our efforts, Missouri Preservation announced their 2007 list of endangered places at a press conference today in front of the Mullanphy building and included an invitation to tomorrow night’s benefit concert in their formal remarks. For the full list of “Most Endangered” historic places in Missouri, visit Missouri Preservation’s website.
