  1. Ralph and Eleanor,

    Thanks for alerting all of us about this project – we were unaware of the existence of the building and the hope to salvage it. I will contact the Mullanphy School where Uncle P held the Mullanphy Reunion in hopes of getting the names of the attendees of that reunion . We need to include them in all of our efforts in the Chamber…

    From the Mound City on the Mississippi Web site (linked here) we found the following pertinent information:

    Name: Mullanphy Emigrant Home
    Address: 14th & Howard
    Architectural Firm/Architect: Barnett & Piquenard
    History:
    Bryan Mullanphy left one-third ($200,000) of his estate to establish
    a fund to “provide relief to all poor emigrants passing through St. Louis
    to settle in the West.” The home served as a place where emigrants
    could stay. When the need for the home passed, it was sold and
    subsequently served a variety of purposes.

    We will also try to attend the fundraiser…

    Bob and Sarah
