Robidoux Row is where the founder of St. Joseph lived and would rent rooms to people waiting to pass the river to Kansas or wait out the winter. It is worth checking out for sure.

We did not go in the museum, but did look at all the houses in the vicinity....we really enjoyed the architecture and were in awe of the massive size of these dwellings--it was almost like every house was trying to outdo the next!
