Tillie's Corner 
a historic small business hub in the City of St. Louis, Missouri

“If I can help just one child, I’ll feel as if I’ve done something right.” 
– Mrs. Lillie V. “Granny” Pearson (Miss Tillie)

The restoration of Tillie's Corner is inspired by Granny's dedication 
and commitment that she had to help children and families.
