Finish Line in Sight for Mullanphy Stabilization!

First, a reminder about the meeting Tuesday evening regarding the progress at Crown Square and information about job training and readiness assistance for job-seekers and prospective employers. Take a look at our blog post from this past Friday for more details.

Now, for an update on the progress at Mullanphy: Thanks to another infusion of funds from Old North St. Louis Restoration Group’s general revenue, our construction crews from E.M. Harris are almost finished with sealing up all openings at the Mullanphy Emigrant Home building — for the first time in nearly two-and-a-half years!

Above: the windows along the block wall at the south end have been boarded to keep the elements out; face brick will be added later as funding allows. Above: the opening at the north end of the building that was created by the second storm to hit the building is just about closed up now.

We still have a way to go with the full stabilization, but getting the building buttoned up before the onset of winter weather is a huge achievement - and made possible by the generosity of many. You can help us cover these costs, pay off some loans, and keep us moving toward full stabilization by making a financial contribution to Mullanphy Emigrant Home LLC (click on the “Make a Donation” button along the right side of this site).

You can also help support the cause & spread the word at the same time by purchasing your own “Save Mullanphy” t-shirt for just $15. To find out how you can get one of these shirts for yourself, your family, friends, or colleagues, stop by the ONSLRG office or give us a call at 314-241-5031.
