 Finding Aid

The Women's Christian Association of St. Louis began an effort to open an elder care facility in June 1880. It purchased a building, Beauvais Manor on South Grand, in May 1882, and opened the facility under the name St. Louis Memorial Home. The collection includes annual reports, minute books, resident applications, a legal file on the home's Baxter Road property, financial and administrative records, and photographs.
