Notes
Survey number HABS MO-1894
Building/structure dates: 1891 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1945 subsequent work
Significance: This triplex residence, 907-911 Dewey Street, is one of many multiple family structures built during the period of St. Joseph's greatest growth and expansion from about 1880 to 1920. Like others constructed during this period, this building is associated with the demand for housing and the popularity of rental real estate as an investment. This particular building has moderate architectural significance as an unusual example of the triplex or diminutive townhouse. In St. Joseph, duplexes or apartment buildings were much more common types of rental housing. Despite interior alterations, the building exterior retains its integrity of location, design, and materials. The original roof shape, windows, doors, and exterior finishes are evident and the entrance porch retains mass-produced ornamentation characteristic of the Victorian period.
