“A Day on the Trail” at Rice-Tremonti Home

 

rice_tremonti

 “A Day on the Trail” at Rice-Tremonti Home

includes an old-fashioned ice cream social

 

The Friends of the Rice-Tremonti Home will hold “A Day on the Trail” open house on Saturday, Sept. 20, 2-6 p.m.  Visitors can enjoy an afternoon of old-fashioned fun on the lawn of the 1844 farmhouse and landmark on the Santa Fe Trail including an ice-cream social, which will begin at 4 p.m. Genuine homemade ice cream will be scooped up during the afternoon, along with beverages and other goodies.

“We want our neighbors and friends to come out for a sociable time with each other and to enjoy this historic treasure that has been preserved in our community,” said Barb Schlapia, president of the Friends of Rice-Tremonti.

In addition to desserts and snacks, a group of historic re-enactors will attend and show how life on the 19th century frontier was really lived. Live music is planned along with activities for kids.  Some seating is available but attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.

“We want to show the public how our group has advanced in preserving this historic home and to challenge them to help us with our ongoing projects,” Schlapia said.

Currently, the Friends are in the process of having all the wood-frame sash windows restored or rebuilt as necessary.  The first phase of the three-phase project is tentatively scheduled to be completed by the end of September.  And as with any 170-year-old wooden house, there are plenty of projects ahead including replacing rotted wood on the exterior.

Tours of the historic home will be conducted at times throughout the day.

There is no charge for admittance to the property, however, donations are greatly appreciated. The Friends of the Rice-Tremonti Home is a not-for-profit, 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to the preservation of the house. All money raised goes toward that process.

Rice-Tremonti Home hosts Order No. 11 Sesquicentennial re-enactments on Sept. 14

 

Rice Tremonti

The Rice-Tremonti Home will observe the 150th anniversary of the issuance of General Order No. 11 by hosting an all day series of dramatic re-enactments on Saturday, Sept. 14 that will explain how martial law depopulated Jackson County in 1863.

In cooperation with the Jackson County Historical Society, a large group of living historians will recreate several scenarios depicting actual accounts of those who experienced the draconian events and aftermath of General Order No. 11. The order resulted in the complete depopulation of all citizens regardless of their political support for the south or the north from the western border counties of Missouri located within the District of the Border (the Counties affected were Jackson, Cass, Bates & Vernon County, north of the Osage River).

 This will be an all-day event at the Rice-Tremonti Home (10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)

Admission to will be free during the day, but parking on the grounds will cost $2 per car. A candlelight tour during the evening scheduled from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in which groups will be led to several sites where living historians will “bring history alive.”

Cost for the candlelight tour is $10 per person.

Many of Jackson County’s homes and farms were destroyed during this time period in the Civil War. Many say the area had a burnt appearance for years after the war and took on the moniker of The Burnt District.” The Rice family had evacuated to Texas in 1861, prior to issuance of the order. For reasons unknown their 1844 farmhouse survived that dangerous episode of local history. The Rice family returned and reclaimed their property in 1866.

 The Rice-Tremonti Home is located at 8801 E. 66th St. (the corner of 66th Street and Blue Ridge Boulevard).

 For more information and to order tickets for the candlelight tours go to the website: www.ordernumber11.org. For more Rice-Tremonti history go to www.rice-tremonti.org.

Rice-Tremonti Home will be open for tours

Rice Tremonti

The Rice-Tremonti Home will be open for tours Saturdays and Sundays from 11-4 from now through October 13th. This Antebellum House was built in 1844, survived the Civil War and still proudly stands right here in Raytown. There is a $3.00 per person donation with children being free. Guided tours will be given with stories of the Rice Family and Aunt Sophie from 1844-until the late 1800’s. This home also served as a chicken dinner restaurant and finally was owned by Dr. and Gloria Tremonti who remodeled it in 1935 and mate it their country home. The Friends of Rice Tremonti currently own the property and are charged with the up keeping of the home and property. Won’t you stop by and let us show this wonderful home to you?

 

Rice-Tremonti Garage Sale, June 6-8; Will be Held at REAP Building

The bi-annual Rice-Tremonti Home Garage Sale will be conducted June 6-8, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day. The big twist this year, however, is that the sale won’t be held in the house or on the grounds. The Raytown Emergency Assistance Program (REAP) management has graciously allowed Rice-Tremonti to utilize their great facilities to hold the sale at the REAP building, which is located at 9300 E. 75th St. in Raytown.

Because REAP is the primary food bank for residents of the Raytown area, we encourage all contributors and attendees to bring canned goods with them to the sale to help restock the food bank shelves.

Rice-Tremonti is looking for donations of your “good junk” including furniture, knick-knacks, decorative items, children’s clothing, toys, usable tools, books and functional household items. Please, no tires or obsolete computer equipment.

So it is important to remember then not to drop off your donations for the sale at the house. Drop off your items at the REAP building beginning on Monday, June 3. Rice-Tremonti will have volunteers working at the REAP building in the week before the sale to accept your contributions and to store them safely out of the weather.

Because of the wear and tear that the garage sale puts on the historic home, the Rice-Tremonti board decided that the sale could no longer be held inside the house. And we can’t hold it outside because it might rain.  So REAP has come to the rescue with the use of their large facility.

 

If you are unable to drop off your donations at REAP, please call Leigh Elmore, 816-333-3586 or Phyllis Miller, 816-353-2338 and they will make arrangements to acquire your donations.

 

Proceeds of the sale will go toward necessary repairs to the Rice-Tremonti Home, which dates from 1844 and was a staging area for travelers heading west on the Santa Fe, Oregon and California Trails in the mid-1800s.  The Friends of the Rice-Tremonti Home is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization dedicated to the preservation of the historic home. The Rice-Tremonti Home is located at 8801 E. 66th St. in Raytown.

 Spring Soup and Craft days is one of a regular series of fund-raisers that are sponsored by the Friends of the Rice-Tremonti Home, the not-for-profit organization that is charged with the preservation, upkeep and restoration of Raytown’s most historic structure.  The home is operated as a historic house museum that interprets the westward trail era of American history, as well as its role in the Civil War.  The Archibald Rice family who immigrated to Missouri from North Carolina in the 1830s built the wood-frame Gothic-Revival style farmhouse in 1844.  The Rice family owned the property until 1903.  Roger Lowe and his family owned and resided in the house into the 1920s. It served as a country inn restaurant for a few years prior to being purchased by Dr. Louis Tremonti and his wife, Gloria in 1935. Dr. Tremonti died in 1949 and Gloria Tremonti lived in the old house until 1987.

 The Friends of the Rice-Tremonti Home have been preserving the property since the group purchased the property in 1988.
