#TrailTuesday On November 23, 1833, Joseph Huston, Sr. purchased all four lots of Block 17 in Arrow Rock, Missouri for $89. Huston was trained as a carpenter and began construction on a Federal-style, two-story, four-room brick building with a detached kitchen the following year that would later become known as the J. Huston Tavern. Sometime between 1837 and 1840, Huston had a brick addition constructed to the west side of the original brick building for the purpose of housing a mercantile or grocery store on the first floor of the addition and a ballroom and meeting hall on the second floor. In 1845, Huston entered into a partnership with prominent Santa Fe Trail trader Philip W. Thompson. Huston’s son, Joseph Huston, Jr., was actively involved in his father’s retail venture, and in 1851, he formed a partnership with John C. Thompson, Sr., entering the mercantile business as “Huston and Thompson,” which was located in the c.1837-1840 brick addition of the Huston Tavern and likely supplied goods for the Santa Fe trade. Today, the building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is owned by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, operating as a museum and restaurant. #SantaFeTrail #NationalHistoricTrail #FindYourTrail #MissouriHistory #TransportationHistory #SalineCountyMO #ArrowRock #HistoricArchitecture #HistoricHome #HistoricTavern #HistoricInn #HistoricRestaurant #NationalRegisterOfHistoricPlaces #BuildingSurvey #SantaFeTrailBuildingSurvey

"Gap View Farm takes its name from the view of the gap near Harpers Ferry. The farm dates to the 1770s, with the original section of the house constructed in 1774 by the first owner, Walter Baker, and additions constructed in the late 18th century, early 19th century, and early 20th century. The interior of the house is rich in woodwork, with paneled doors, reveals, baseboards, and fireplaces and an open stairway. ⠀
The original 400-acre farm was divided by the railroad which came through the property in 1872. Besides the main house, there are 19 outbuildings and structures scattered across the landscape. These include two tenant house, a log smokehouse, and a cedar barn from the 1700s. Many of the present outbuildings, including a third tenant house, date from 1937." (Historic West Virginia: The National Register of Historic Places) ⠀
Gap View Farm is one of the few remaining pre-revolutionary farms in Jefferson County and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.⠀
