Former Marthasville Seminary and Emmaus Homes, Spring 2021

Update: The property has been purchased and is being renovated into a hotel as of the winter of 2022.

Fast forward to the spring of 2021, and the Emmaus Homes are vacant, and due to a recent auction of the property are in the hands of a new owner. The bridge over the creek that separates the buildings from the road is chained shut and there is a “no trespassing” sign blocking any further entrance.

I’m not sure who will purchase this property to use it in the future. The site is isolated, down a very narrow road in Warren County?to the east of Marthasville. The structures are indeed historic, and I hope that someone finds a use for it. Missouri Preservation has put it on its Most Endangered List.

    Thank you for this one, Chris. My sister lived a portion of her life there.
