The Building

Henry Miller Museum – International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local No.1 St. Louis Missouri (IBEW)

IBEW was founded in St. Louis Missouri over 125 years ago by Henry Miller in a modest boarding house located in the JeffVanderLou Neighborhood at 2728 Martin Luther King Dr. The building had long been abandoned and boarded up since the 1950s.  To celebrate the 125th anniversary of this great brotherhood, the officers and members of IBEW Local No.1 renovated birthplace of their great union as a lasting memorial to their founders and a permanent tribute to the future of their industry.

About the Project

B & K Tuckpointing was proud to be a part of the 100% union team that was assembled to restore this building. The building was surgically restored by removing parging on the outside walls and tuckpointing the entire building solid.   After all of the exterior masonry restoration work was completed, the building was sealed. It was an honor for B & K to serve beside all of the wonderful union tradespeople who contributed to this breathtaking transformation.


The building was parged at some point during its lifetime.


B & K Tuckpointing removed the parging, tuckpointed the outside walls solid, and restored the original brick.
