St. Joseph is known for its quantity of beautiful mansions built around the turn of the century, and the Wyeth-Tootle Mansion at the corner of Eleventh and Charles Streets is a prime example. This 1879 Gothic sandstone mansion illustrates the cultural, architectural, and economic history of 19th century St. Joseph.
The first floor highlights the Wyeth's original Early American Dining Room furnishings from the 1880's. The second floor features a restored Victorian bedroom exhibit as well as exhibits on the Civil War in St. Joseph and the life and death of Jesse James. The third floor contains exhibits on the natural history of the area. Because of its age and historic nature, the Wyeth-Tootle Mansion has limited handicap accessibility.
Hours and Admission:
The Mansion will open for the 2013 season on April 19th and will be open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We will open by appointment for groups of 20 or more upon request. Admission is $5 adults, $3 students, and free for children 6 and under. Museum members are free.
As part of the St. Joseph Museums, Inc. group, both guided tours of any or all of the museums and group rates are available. To schedule a group tour for adults or students, please call 1-800-530-8866 or 816-232-8471.
