      Which St. Joseph architects designed this building?
      Newspaper in Education

      The Noyes Home for Children has some interesting nooks and crannies where kids can write. Find a nook at home where you can read the newspaper. Add some paper and pencils. Then consider making a journal about your school year and what’s being reported in the News-Press. Write your thoughts about what you read in the newspaper and what’s happening at school in your class. Decorate the journal with newspaper photos, words or cartoons. Write about your goals for this school year. Don’t forget to date each entry in your journal. In each spot, talk about what you think was built or happened there.

      The Noyes Home for Children, one of the city’s architectural treasures, has been around since before there was a Noyes Boulevard.

      Toward the end of the 19th century, local merchant Charles W. Noyes and his wife, Sarepta, were bereft of their four children and decided that helping unfortunate and needy children would be a suitable memorial.

      Mr. Noyes offered to pay for the building, its furnishings and an endowment if the Ladies Union Benevolent Association would be the managers, said Ray Carson, the home’s director.

      Back in 1873, a number of women in different local Protestant churches formed a Union Bible Class. The ladies voiced a desire to perform some community work and created the Benevolent Association.

      The association created a Home of the Friendless to care for destitute women and children. By 1880, the association acquired former Mayor Armstrong Beattie’s property on the northwest corner of Main and Poulin streets.

      The ladies wanted a home that could care for children, and Mr. and Mrs. Noyes’ gift was an answer to their prayers. At the request of the couple, the home, designed by the city’s leading architects, Eckel and Aldridge, was to be called the Home for Little Wanderers.

      The home has received several renovations, but still looks as the architects designed it, Mr. Carson said. The 20-inch-thick walls and wide halls, with their tall ceilings and fans, don’t even require air conditioning; although some spaces have been air-conditioned in different parts of the building.
      The beautiful building has about 150 children walking, running or sliding over its shiny maple wood floors and climbing its oak staircases with their sturdy bannisters, where even Harry Potter might feel at home.

      The Noyes Home does not charge for its services. Anyone interested in volunteering or contributing can go to www.noyeshome.org.

      Each week, Property of the Past writer Marshall White features a building or an item of St. Joseph history. If you have a home, building, special collection or an interesting piece of history that you’d like to see featured, contact him at marshall.white@newspressnow.com.


      Saint Joseph Gazette 7 Sep 1984

      Deaths of Noyes' own children prompted endowment for home

      Charles W. Noyes was born in Salem, N.H., Oct. 5, 1837. He came to St. Joseph in 1877 and helped found a wholesale shoe company known as the Patterson, Noyes, Norman Shoe Co. It was later known as Noyes, Norman Shoe Co.

      Mr. and Mrs. Noyes had four children, three of which died in infancy, one daughter lived in adulthood and married E.S. Gosney.

      In 1874 the Ladies Union Benevolent Association (L.U.B.A) was formed and established the Home of the Friendless for poor and destitute women and children. They rented property for a number of years as they helped these homeless people.

      As a memorial to his three children, Noyes offered to build, furnish and endow a home for children in St. Joseph. He stipulated that L.U.B.A. would manage the home and it would be known as the Home for Little Wanderers.

      In 1893 the site known as the Carter place was selected and in 1894, 39 children were moved into the large, roomy building which became known as 801 N. Noyes Blvd.

      The home still stands and is still operated by L.U.B.A. for children from troubled homes.

      In the meantime L.U.B.A had not only gained the admiration of Noyes but of many other community leaders who contributed to the foundation. One in particular was George T. Hoagland who created the Hoagland Endowment Fund to help in the operation of the Home for the Friendless.

      In 1880 the L.U.B.A. purchased the Beattie homestead at Main and Poulin Streets and, after the children's home was established, they devoted their efforts to the elderly and the name was changed to the Memorial Home for Old People,

      Many of the pieces of furniture in the present Memorial Home came from the Hoagland Home at 10th and Robidoux Streets.

      The Noyes School at 26th and Delaware was named after Noyes and board of park commissioners named the first boulevard in his honor. When Noyes retired he and his wife moved to California where he died in a Los Angeles hotel on Jan. 27, 1912.

      His will stipulated that the trustees "erect and equip a hospital for free use of the deserving poor."

      When the announcement was made that a hospital was to be built out of trust funds, numerous locations for the proposed building were submitted before the one at 24th and Jones Streets (near Frederick Avenue) was chosen in 1914.

      Even though it operated originally to care for the poor at no cost, accommodations for paying patients were permitted. However, with the 1929 stock market crash, funds from the trust dwindled and the Baptist Church took over the administration.

      After two years, the Noyes Estate sold the building to the Missouri Methodist Hospital and it was used for a nurses' dormitory until 1955.

      The building still stands as a beautiful reminder of one of our city founders.
