    The build date on record says 1848 but a National Register report of the Buddy House nearby says it was built the same year as the Buddy House, 1883, which feels more appropriate based on the exterior and interior features. Report: link.

    Obviously there’s been a lot of water damage but what a beauty! I’m crazy in love this morning!

    WOW!!!! Lots of damage- I could never afford the repairs, but so great with all the originals features that are still intact. I wonder how the foundation is. Hope someone feels this is worth saving despite the work.

    Kudos to the realtor for showing this house “warts and all”. The new roof, etc. will hopefully improve its chances of being restored.

    St Joe is a Mecca for houses like this. If the roof is fixed and the inside is now secure this isn’t that big a deal for renovation and repair. A good drywall team can have it back in shape in a week. Also, the new owner could take advantage of the exposed wall studs and ceilings (in the damaged areas ) to upgrade wiring and plumbing and the radiator pipes.

    When I lived and worked on old houses and buildings in St. Joseph in 2004-2006, there was one family associated with fine masonry work, the Bohots. They had decades of experience restoring the faded brick and stone buildings and homes of St. Joseph and were frequently in the local newspaper as they bravely scaled church spires and performed other daredevil feats in the course of their challenging work. It looks like two members of the Bohot family, Randy and Tyler, continue the family business. It’s true that St. Joe has scores of brick buildings and homes with water infiltration issues. They typically begin with leaking gutters that allow water to erode the soft lime mortar of the Victorian era eventually leading to individual bricks falling or even entire walls. At that point the city usually steps in and within a few days another old St. Joe structure is no more. For those well experienced in traditional masonry work St. Joe would be a lifetime assignment. I haven’t spoken to any of the Bohots since I worked in St. Joe. One of the first projects I worked on was the Bohot folk house (Wikipedia: ) which needed a new wood shingle roof. In summary, some obvious brick work is needed but there are tradespeople in St. Joe with plenty of experience in this kind of work. The price of the property reflects the needed work. Besides the needed brick repairs the next thing I would do if this were mine is put back the newel post lamp. The cap with the centered hole at the top of the newel almost for certain once had a gas pipe that supplied a gas lamp back in the day.

    I hope that someone sees the beauty that once was and restores her!

    Even with all the damage you can see the beauty of this house. I actually like the ‘artfullness’ of the exposed brick behind the wallboard.
    And right across the state line from my Nebraskan relatives!

    The brick was damaged by a micro burst hitting the bay wall, it was turned over to the insurance company but the insurance company would not cover it. Much of the tuck-pointing has been done by the owners and it has been difficult to get a tuck-pointer to come give an estimate.

    The house had new windows put in, all custom made at Great Lakes, the cost over $50,000.00 for 28 windows. What the owners walked into was far worse than what these photos expose.

    The abstract shows every person that has lived in this home has a booth in Patee House Museum, this would include Joseph Smith, William Ridenbaugh, Rufus McDonald, General William R. Penick, The first chapter of the Humane Society, The Moore’s of New York.The abstract will come with the house as well as 30 years of research on each owner of this house.

    This house is one of six homes in Saint Joseph, Missouri designed by Eckel & Mann. The reason for this house being sold so low, is to sell it quickly as the owner is wanting to move out of state quickly. Make me an offer, it might be yours.
