In 1854 Armstrong and Eliza Beattie built the house that would become known as “The House on the Hill”, Beattie Mansion. Armstrong Beattie was known to be the first banker in St. Joseph, which led to him being the only person elected as mayor of St. Joseph for 5 terms.
After a terrible ordeal with Cholera, Armstrong died in 1878 with Eliza passing away 2 years later. As they had no children, the home was sold to the Ladies Union Benevolent Association. Beattie Mansion became a home for those who were homeless or otherwise in distress.
In 1895 Beattie Mansion became the “Memorial Home for the Aged” for 100 years. In 1995, the mentally ill and those with substance abuse issues were housed inside the home. In 2004 Beattie Mansion was sold to owners who sought to turn the historic property into a bed and breakfast.
