“History of the Founder of St. Joseph, MO!”

Robidoux Row Museum
Ranked #17 of 48 things to do in Saint Joseph
Attraction details
Reviewed August 16, 2012

This was a great little museum on the founder of St. Joseph. Amazing that the building is still holding up. Has some of the original wood floor boards still intact. Joseph Robidoux died in this house in the 1850's. Wonder if his ghost is still here?

Visited the museum at the 30th Birthday of the rehabilitation and preservation of the building. This building was built by Joseph Robidoux, founder of St Joseph. He built this building to house travelers headed west from St Joseph. The museum has interesting artifacts and information about the founder's family and life in 19th century St Joseph. The size of rooms that housed whole families and the "commons" room with the only fireplace in the structure are very interesting.

The lower level can be utilized for meetings and social events as there are kitchen facilities. Weddings have been performed in the beautiful garden located north of the building.

This is an important building in the history of St Joseph and deserves to be visited by more people for a glimpse of everyday 19th century life.
