                                  St Joseph is known for its quality of beautiful mansions.                              

                               Houston Wyeth Mansion

In 1920, Houston Wyeth built the Georgian design mansion for his family.                                                      

The mansion included a total of 21,133 square feet with 15,332 square feet of living area, nestled on 24-gated acres. 

 

The stylish mansion consisted of 13 rooms on the first and second floors, the lower level 5 rooms for employee quarters and 4+ basement garage, with the third floor a ballroom and additional employee quarters.  

The general exterior features stucco with red clay tile roof, separate guardhouse, cabana and a small barn.

Solarium's include tile floors and circle head windows with domed plaster ceilings.

In 1984 a local investment group purchased the Houston Wyeth Mansion, transforming the property to a professional office building.  The front portion of the grounds is St Joseph's finest professional office business parks with 9 freestanding individually owned buildings with the Georgian design.

Hi Ann!  The Houston Wyeth Mansion is really a beautiful property and the grounds are kept so immaculate.  The developers really had a great idea on the property.

Hopefully some day it can be reconverted from an office building to a home, perhaps as a museum, but at least it was saved. Too many cities allow historic homes and structures to be destroyed in the name of progress.
