Jennifer Baxter-Higgs stands outside her home on Ninth Street, which is designated as a local landmark.

The city of St. Joseph has a long history since its establishment in 1851, but those 171 years have yielded only nine local landmark designations.

Around town, people can notice small circular green plaques on old buildings that say “St. Joseph Landmark.” One is placed on City Hall, next to the front door. But these are not official.
