Wyeth-Tootle Mansion

Wyeth-Tootle Mansion Working restoration of the home highlights incredible woodwork, ornate patterned floors, and hand-painted ceilings. 1900 interior photographs add a visual of what it would have been like to visit the home.

Space is also dedicated to museum exhibits. Home to the William Wyeth family from 1879-1888 and then the Milton Tootle family until 1947. The home was then transformed into a museum for St. Joseph, and continues as a secondary location for the St. Joseph Museums, Inc. today. The mansion houses exhibits on architecture, transportation, nature, culture, and wonder. It is also home to numerous community events, fundraisers, and privately rented occasions.

Two 1954 snapshots of Jim Riney, brother-in-law of Harold Dugdale, posing with the taxidermy grizzly bear downed by Dugdale. This bear was displayed at Dugdale Packing for a number of years and later donated to the St. Joseph Museum where it is still on exhibit at the Wyeth-Tootle Mansion. #MansionMonday

Songbird Garden plans from Missouri Grow Native

This newly redesigned Songbird Garden plan incorporates native plants that provide nutritious fruits and seeds to feed adult songbirds, as well as a diversity of sedges and wildflowers whose foliage provides food for insect larvae that birds need to feed their babies. The diversity of plant forms (small trees, shrubs, and herbaceous perennials) also provide shelter and nesting habitat for the songbirds we treasure.

We were fortunate enough to have Dorinda Makanaonalani Nicholson at the museum today to teach the girls about WWII in Hawaii, the attack on Pearl Harbor which she witnessed first hand, and her hula knowledge and skills. Today's museum week theme is #WordsForTheFutureMW . Actions like Dorinda's speak much louder than words. But she did share some encouraging words with the girls that they could change the world with their power of love, especially when the world loves power. Thank you for allowing us to share your story and experiences for the future. #SundayFunday

I'm a kid at hart, I want to go to the Robotics Workshop 😀
Very rude and very unprofessional to be denied to tour well before closing time and yet you have 10 other people still inside touring then watch you let other people in! Seems ur more worried about getting off work the sharing St. Joseph's beautiful historical sites! Very disappointed 😔
