There is great news about the Mullanphy Emigrant Home: the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group has the damaged landmark under contract.
However, the effort to truly preserve the building only now begins. The What’s New in Old North blog maintained by the Restoration Group’s Executive Director Sean Thomas reports that the organization needs to raise between $100,000 and 150,000 to be able to stabilize the building before being able to market it to developers. The blog entry details how people can help by making donations to the stabilization effort.
