Belt Branch

Community Room

Owner/Innkeeper Isobel McGowan shares her story of preserving one of St. Joseph's architectural treasures.

Isobel McGowan is a leading force for preservation in St. Joseph. Her work on behalf of the historic buildings of St. Joseph began when she purchased the Chateau, then described as a “distressed building” in 2012 and meticulously restored it to the glory that we see today. Isobel has served as the Chair of the Landmarks Commission (the city board tasked with overseeing the local historic districts), President of the Historic St. Joseph Foundation, and the founder and President of the Old Town North Neighborhood Association.       (https://historicsaintjosephemporium.com/places-to-stay-things-to-do)
