I lived in St. Joe from 1946 - 1960. Sadly the population is the same now as when I came. Many of the old neighborhoods are a little tacky.
Great old photos!

Really enjoyed this. I was looking for a brick of something wrapped in red waxed paper and sold in meat counter in the 50's. Mother used this to make chilli and I was wondering what it was.

Great website, was glad to see the history of our city captured. So nice to see the addresses and whether or not the buildings are still standing. We have lost so many of them. Thanks!!

Hi! I loved running into this site. Back in the day, my family used to come to St. Joseph frequently to visit my grandmother and take her shopping, so we spent a lot of time at East Hills Mall! But the best treat was the arcade next to Dunkin Donuts on Frederick. I wish I could remember the name! If anyone has any pics to post to this site, I would love to see them!

Love this site. It re-connects me with old St. Joe, where I grew up. Hoping to make contact with my old classmates, Central High Class of 1968.

Any and all who visit this site please check out the Sig Smith Flying Circus poster, recently posted by Rick in the Lake Contrary section. Sig Smith and my wife's great aunt Babe (Jenkins) Smith, (well known parachutist) resided in the St Joseph area back in the 1930's. I am hoping with this post that someone might remember anything about Sig or Sigmund back in the 1930's or later. I know this was some time ago but maybe someone remembers seeing something or reading something about him. I sure would love to know his whereabouts.

Hello, Max Guenther suggested I contact you. I am currently president of the Jefferson Highway Association. They moved to St. Joseph in 1918 and had headquarters there in several locations over the next several years. Take a look at the Jefferson Highway face-book page, and their web-page at

I'm so glad that this site exists, but was saddening to see many of my old friends from growing-up in St Joe, have passed on. Thank you and please update as necessary.

Thank you....nicely done. I bought and turned a home at 13th and Charles back into a single family home as was built. My investigation led me to understand it was (the home) built in 1860s by the Marchaine family from France. The details I discovered revealed that he, Francois, was an aquaintance of Joseph Roubidoux, owned and operated a confectionery in St Joseph. He and his family are buried in St Joseph. I wrote a letter to Orleans France (the Mayor), since this was where his obituary showed he was born and raised, to see if they could elighten me of any details. The Mayors office wrote back (in French) so I went to the main Library and someone there interrupted the letter. The Mayor said that when the Nazi’s went through Orleans they made a large bonfire in the town square of all municipal records, so Orleans written history pre 1940 is gone.
Anyway, I could never locate the Marchaine family confectionary address. It must have done well as the family seemed without need.
The home is still standing and occupied. It is the stucco covered brick two story home on the northwest corner. The 6’ iron fence is not original. I purchased itin the 1970’s from a Quaker Oats remodel and put it up at this home.
thanks for listening,
Carey Pearson

Left SJ many many years ago but it will always be an integral part of my memory bank for the first 21 years of my life. Your page jogs many corners of my mind and my formative years in that city. Thanks for maintaining this great focal point on St. Joseph and its place in history. Job very well done. Barent Springsted, Bangkok, THAILAND

Writing a novel set in St. Joe in 1910. Your site has helped in my research immensely.
