Welcome to the official website of the Museum Hill Neighborhood Association
in Historic Saint Joseph, Missouri!
Historic Saint Joseph is like no other place you will ever experience--a town of such extraordinary historic and architectural merit, that all others pale by comparison. And those of us in the Museum Hill Neighborhood feel that we have the "CROWN JEWELS" in this extraordinary place!
Our wonderful sister neighborhood organizations might disagree, (and they do have some "killer" architecture of their own) but we do all agree with the fact that Historic Saint Joseph is the one place to be if you are a fan of VICTORIAN AMERICA.
Historic Saint Joseph, Missouri is home to Eugene Fields' "Lovers Lane." It is also host to one of the Nation's most spectacular collections of Victorian Architecture. Boasting over 300 homes from the Victorian Era, itself, the Museum Hill Neighborhood spans a vast area, from 9th Street to 15th Street and from Faraon Street to Messanie Street. At the very center of Museum Hill, overlooking downtown Saint Joseph and the Missouri River, rests an 1879 Gothic Revival Castle. Dubbed the "Wyeth-Tootle Mansion," this stone edifice is the center of our Neighborhood and that for which we are named.
Museum Hill Neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and its historic preservation and restoration is overseen by the Saint Joseph Landmark Commission. The Museum Hill Neighborhood Association unites a culturally diverse and family-oriented community of people who work to preserve the Neighborhood's unique architectural treasures, while educating others about its stories and rich history.
Here, on our website, we strive to make available as much usable information about Museum Hill as we can. When you navigate through our pages, you will find: real estate listings of our historic houses, newsletter archives of our association, our community calendar, and contributions by guest editors to our blog. We also post links to other sites and communities with interests in historic home restoration or life in Historic Saint Joseph, Missouri, in general. Our photo galleries continue to grow with images of historic buildings, life and style on Museum Hill, and other contributions from the community.
We hope that you will enjoy our site, and perhaps fall in love with Historic Saint Joseph, just as we have. If you like what you see, and dream of living the life fantastic, there's always room for you here! Those of us that have moved here from all "corners of the globe" challenge you to find any other place so full of Victorian history, architecture and hospitality as what you will find in Museum Hill.
