Union Pacific Selma Castle

The Selma Castle is an unique renovation of a stone masonry structure built atop a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River in 1854.  Pinnacle was challenged to restore and revive the charm of this structure through an extensive masonry restoration process and interior updates.  The East façade possessed challenging access as we were forced to navigate the bluff with the river below.  The stone restoration required using original stone from the quarry, hand tools for tuckpointing, repair of damaged stone, and many other techniques to breathe new life into the building.  In addition, Pinnacle repaired the exterior windows, replaced wood trim, and exterior painting was completed.  Damaged plaster and painting areas at the interior have been restored along with mechanical, electrical and fire alarm upgrades all while keeping the historical nature of the building intact.
  • Client: Union Pacific Railroad Company
  • Project: Union Pacific Selma Castle
  • Architect: Fox Architects
  • Location: Festus, Missouri


In our experience with Pinnacle they accomplished the three service requirements we strive for in our own business: 1) Fast 2) Friendly and 3) Ownership. The team moved quickly and met all important deadlines during the construction process. Every person we encountered from Pinnacle was pleasant to work with and demonstrated a positive, friendly attitude. When a problem occurred the leadership took ownership to resolve the problem instead of passing blame. I highly recommend Pinnacle and will use them again when we expand our offices.
