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.

#ThankfulThursday to Tori Zieger. Tori has been working with us on identifying our archaeology dig site artifacts. This collection is looking SO much better because of her work!

#MansionMonday with a timewarp through the Mansion's exterior changes. The majority of the exterior is brick, the front half of the building has a sandstone facade. The sandstone came out of the quarries in Warrensburg, MO. The sandstone has had to be worked on pretty extensively from erosion over the years. That repair is the reason for the CIP project going on now. We are open for about 2 more months regularly Friday and Saturday from 10am - 4pm!

Can't wait to see you all at the car show today! You may notice the beginnings of the CIP project renovations. So far the crew has powerwashed paint off of the south side brick and wood. The brick will be tuck pointed and repaired where needed. The wood on the windows will be replaced where needed with teak wood to help better resist against water. Some of the sandstone around the windows as well will be replaced with marble so that they do not get worn down by erosion. Check back with us on #MansionMonday for some throw back photos and updates to the project.

Happy Monday everyone! If you remember the Vale of Glencoe painting from a few weeks back, it is now housed in the dining room of the Mansion. Also on display right now in the dining room is this 1948 cabinet with Owen family ties. It is currently housing china sets from the Tootle Family. #MansionMonday

#WildWestWednesday Today in 1865, Davis Tutt is shot and killed during a showdown in Springfield, Missouri. Many experts believe this is the first true showdown of the Wild West. Then in 1873, the James-Younger Gang and Jesse James pull off a train robbery at Adair in Iowa. It’s one of the first successful train robberies of the Wild West in America.
Photo from our archives (https://hub.catalogit.app/5441) is of the Jesse James home in its original location on Lafayette. It was moved to the Belt Highway in 1939 then moved for the second time to its present location on 12th Street in 1977. Patee House Museum & Jesse James Home

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 πŸ˜”
