The building was quickly rebuilt and remained in place until the Great Cyclone of 1896 completely destroying the hospital.
Rebuilt from the ground up as a new hospital it remained a staple of the St. Louis medical community until 1987 and was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 2001.
It was later converted to a mid-rise condo complex featuring pool, fitness center, observation deck and secured parking and a staple of the Soulard neighborhood.
Individual units are finished out with high-end amenities like hardwood floors, granite counters and premium hardwood cabinets and gas fireplaces.
Residents quickly learn how easy it is to walk to Soulard just blocks away to take in the Soulard Farmer's Market on Saturday or the many restaurants and bars in this very popular part of St. Louis City.
