The following is the 1872 list of buildings constructed and designed by St. Joseph architects and builders. Some very important historic properties are on this list: Tootle Opera House, the Krug Residence at Pine Ridge, designs for Mount Mora and Oakland Cemeteries, and St. Patrick's Church. Thankfully these historic properties remain with us. (Sadly, Col. I.G. Kappner's fine residence on Edmond St. with an astronomy room and a orangerie is now gone!)
You'll notice that St. Joseph architects not only designed buildings in this city but elsewhere in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and Dakota Territory. W. Angelo Powell for instance is listed as designing fireproof county buildings in Columbia, Missouri. This is especially interesting because during the period 1847-1853 he worked in Washington, D. C. on the staff of Robert Mills, Architect of Public Buildings. Mills had in 1836 designed the new U. S. Treasury Building which was innovative in its fireproof design. (The previous Treasury Building was destroyed by arson.)

"More Extensive Improvements this Year than Ever Before. An Immense sum of Money Expended in New Buildings. The Railroad Bridge, Tootle's Opera House, and other Great Improvements."
"LIST OF THE PRINCIPAL BUILDINGS ERECTED DURING THE YEAR."
During the year 1872 improvements on the largest scale have been made in St. Joseph. The construction of the Railroad Bridge has given employment to scores of mechanics and laborers and thrown thousands of dollars into general circulation. The erection of Tootle's Opera House and the building of the Starch Factory have also been marked events in the year's improvements. A large number of large store houses and handsome and costly private residences have been built during the year, with an unusually large number of neat, but less costly, homes. Our architects had builders state that at least three hundred and fifty buildings, large and small, were erected during the year, and that twice as much money was expended in these improvements as in any previous year, and they furthermore state that the prospects are that more improvements will be made this year.
During the year, the Atchison Branch of the [three words obscured] extending from St. Joseph to Atchison was completed. This branch road was constructed under the management of Gen. Singleton, and is one of the most substantial roads in the West.
At the commencement of the year, the St. Joseph & Denver road was completed 131 miles west of the Missouri river. During the year 100 miles of the track were laid, and 29 miles additions graded. Eleven fine depots and three water tanks were constructed during the year.
The Kansas City, St. Joseph & Northern Railway has erected at their depot in this city, new and improved stock yards, supplied with wells of living water. Also a new turn table; all these improvements cost over $20,000.
On the branch line between this city and the R. & L. Junction they have constantly employed from 60 to 100 section men in repairing and putting in first-rate condition the track, and the same now is in excellent condition.
The Kansas City, St. Joseph & Council Bluffs railroad has constructed a cut off from Amazonia to Savannah, a distance of seven miles, at an expense of over $150,000. This will greatly facilitate our communications with one of the most profitable sections tributary to St. Joseph in trade. Great improvements have also been made at the extensive machine shops of the company located in this city.
All the above roads have done increased freight and passenger business during the year, and our prosperity has been thereby greatly advanced.
TOOTLE'S OPERA HOUSE.
The largest, costliest, and most beautiful building that has been erected in this city during the year that has just closed, is Tootle's Opera House, erected by the energy and munificence of Milton Tootle, one of the wealthiest citizens of St. Joseph. Au full and complete description of the entire building, covering nearly six columns, was published n the Herald of December 10th. In our present article on annual improvements we have space for only a brief sketch of the building, and for more minute information we refer our readers to the more extended description alluded to.
The building is located on the corner of Francis and Fifth streets, with the main front on Francis. Its dimensions are 128 feet on Francis by 120 feet on Fifth, four stories on Francis and five on the south side, with Mansard roof. The building is of brick, profusely ornamented with fine cut stone in front, and embellished with ornamental cornices. The exterior of the building is a model of beauty, and when completely finished will present a finer appearance than any other building in the city. The interior is finished off without regard to expense, and where propriety would allow it, is truly magnificent.
The grand auditorium is the most beautiful apartment of the building, and columns could be filled in describing it. In its design, construction and completion, every section of it has been under the superintendence of the most skillful and experienced artists and mechanics, and genius, labor, time and gold have been expended with a lavish generosity to make it a truly magnificent creation. The ideal has been realized. Artists and critics pronounce it the finest theatre in the United States.
The halls and entries to the auditorium are large and complete in their appointments. The auditorium is 66 feet wide by 69 feet long, and 45 feet high from floor to dome. The seating capacity is divided into parquette, containing 246 seats; dress circle, surrounding parquette, and on first floor, containing about 350 seats; family circle, on first gallery, with seating capacity for 312 persons, and the second gallery, which will accommodate about 400. There are also four proscenium boxes, which together will afford room for about 50 persons. The comfortable seating capacity is therefore about 1,400.
The stage is 32 feet wide by 40 feet deep, and has a height of 38 feet. The stage is the most complete and perfect part of the building, and is supplied with all the modern machinery, a full stock of scenery, and nothing is wanting [five words obscured] of everything in the whole range of the drama. The drop curtain is an original and beautiful piece of work, executed in the highest style of art.
The room is lighted with gas, and the auditorium is supplied with a magnificent chandelier, surpassed in elegance by only one or two in America.
This splendid temple of art was opened on Monday night, December 9th, by Maggie Mitchell, who made her first appearance in "Fanchon, the Cricket," and filled a brilliant and successful engagement of a week.
The total cost of the building, when completed, will not be less than $150,000. In erecting this large and very beautiful building, Mr. Tootle has, as far as it was possible, purchased the material in this city, and employed St. Joseph Workmen. For this, as well as for the building itself, he receives the gratitude of the people of St. Joseph.
