We dig old, primitive. We haven't slept in a bed or put our britches in a dresser, that isn't at least 100 years older than we are, since we were kids. It only gets older from there.
Our farm was homesteaded in 1840, our log home 1845, the Stone Barn 1850. We live, understand and
collect primitive country Americana.
Hermann Antique Show in Historic Downtown Hermann. The longest continuously running quality antique show in Missouri. Over 30 antique dealers.
The Dog Trot Cabin was originally constructed as a single pen in 1845. Around 1848, the second larger pen was added and the cabin was turned into a Dog Trot.
Our current project is restoring an 1855 German Hewn Log Smokehouse. Of course we hired a German Shepard to guard it.
If it seems like quality country primitives are getting increasingly difficult to find, you're right. We travel everywhere mostly east of the Big Muddy, collecting old. Old paint, old pegged, old Americana.
