Awesome!!!! Looking for picture's of Neely when it opened in 1908. My house is on the hill behind the old gym doors & has been in my family since the 60's. I would LOVE to find the picture that I've been told exist of my house from 1908 & is shown in the background of Neely's picture.

A fantastic trip back, what a lovely site and collection of images, your site is a great asset and there are far a few between like this, The city where I live doesn't have this kind of thing and if you want to access old images you have to pay for them.

Keep up the hard work.

Best Wishes David Butland

My grandfather was an engineer on the CB&Q and his first day as an engineer was 12-12-12. His name was Michael Joseph Martin and his son was Connett Sebastian Martin (little Mike). Thanks for the site. Keep it going!

I was born in St. Joe and both my parents considered it home. My Grandparents on both sides lived there most of their lives and died there, with my fathers side going much further back. I love reading about the things I remember my parents talking about. Many fond memories of the area while visiting as a child. Thank you !

I grew up in St. Joseph and many of the things presented here aroused lots of memories. I left St Joe in 1961 for a military career and now live in Connecticut.

Interesting site. My father and grandparents are all from St. Joseph, MO. I hope to visit some day to experience life as they knew it and look up grave sites of my ancestors

Really enjoyed seeing what the area looked like before the buildings were torn down. More preservation is a must!!! Thanks for all the work you have done to make these "memories" available to those who have a computer!
WE hope some pictures before and after of Krug Park will be added to this site also!

Great website - thanks for doing this! My Grandparents (Mary and Julius Frohlich) owned Dryden's on 7th Street together with Juanita Dryden. I'm their grandson, and I'm going to be doing a road trip to St Joe this summer with my two kids so they can see where my father - Robert Frohlich - grew up including their house on Birch St (over by the Moila Country Club).

Does anyone recall the robbery that occurred there back in the late 1960's? The robbers went into the basement of the store next to Dryden's (I think it was either a Moose Lodge or the Eye Glass Store), broke into the basement of Dryden's (both sides with sledge hammers) and then on into the jewelry store (or was it a bank?) next door for the big heist. After that - I was always really creeped-out as a kid going down into the basement of Dryden's to use the bathroom with all those old dress dummies and boxes stored there plus you could see where they repaired both sides of the basement walls with different colored bricks after the robbery. It was easy as a 6 ~ 7 year old kid to imagine that the robbers were still down there in the basement just waiting to jump out at you!

My family lived in St. Joe until 1956. For some reason I started thinking of those long sliding boards and was searching for pictures. Sliding on those was one of my fond childhood memories. So sorry they were removed. Loved all you shared about the park. I remember it as a terrific place to picnic, play, and feed the ducks in the pond. Thanks for the memories.
