Our 80 acre farm has been in Sandra’s family for 121 of the past 168 years (as of 2012). The farmhouse & barns were built by Sandra’s great-grandfather, John Albert Adams, shortly after the Civil War. Bill & Sandra purchased the farm in 1981, and after Bill retired from the USAF in 1986, they created a B&B in the 1867 Farmhouse. The Cottage on the Knoll was built in 1998 and the Farmhouse closed shortly thereafter.

Our personal interests include
- Civil War study reenacting (Bill has posted his great grandfather’s memoir; we also have a schedule of reenactments).
- Bill shoots skeet competitively
- Sandra & Bill like to travel and both enter their photography in area art contests (see some of their travels & photos at their Missouri Day Trips Website)
- We’ve taken care of an assortment of horses and cats; some of our horses have lived into their 30s.
