Photo of a receipt from the Norman Shoe company from 1897.

The Noyes-Norman Shoe Company was established in 1861 by Charles Noyes. The Noyes-Norman Shoe Co. was located on the northeast corner of 3rd and Faraon.

In 1909, a neighboring building located at 415 North 3rd was an expansion of the company. In modern times, the neighboring building was remodeled into an apartment building called The Lofts Currently, the Noyes Norman building is gone, a parking lot occupies this location. #WayBackWednesday

Though departing St. Joseph to live primarily in Los Angeles, where he died in 1912, Mr. Noyes left money in his will for the construction of a hospital to serve the city’s poor. It opened in 1916, later drawn into the Methodist Hospital orbit. Noyes Hospital, 2400 Frederick, was constructed in 1915 under terms of the will of Charles Noyes, who had been president of Noyes Norman Shoe Company. This hospital provided free care for children of limited income families as part of its service. This was originally Noyes Hospital and was located at 24th & Frederick Ave. (The building still stands under the name Frederick Towers.) In 1953 it was listed as Missouri Methodist Hospital Nurses Home. Anchor Serum acquired the building in 1955. Anchor Serum moved their operation to Belt & Gene Field. It is now called Frederick Towers and now houses many business offices. On the top floor, in the center, was the operating room. The bottom floor ( basement) was where the morgue was located. #WayBackWednesday

Great to see Josh and Deanna Bowers back at the Noyes Home today. They have been bringing healthy smoothies to the Noyes Home children for 2 years plus. They recently took time off as they had a new baby Macklynn who is now 7 weeks old. Also pictured is Brynlee who is 3 years and at school is Jocelyn who is 8. #GratitudeTuesday
