|First settled in 1858 by David E. Harcourt of
Scott County, Kentucky, the farm hasn't seen many changes through the ages.
Neglected over the last two decades, it has been a non-stop project to bring this land
back into working condition.
Working with in close cooperation
with the local Missouri Agriculture and Conservation Departments, the farm will again see
profitable growing seasons and sensible land management techniques.
We are still searching for any information regarding those who have
lived here before. Our ultimate goal is to find a few family pictures that might
have shown those individuals or the farm while it was still being actively worked and
This site is dedicated to the memory of those past residents who
undoubtedly lived life to its fullest!t se
||Not much is known at this time about the previous owners of this old farm.
From it's beginings in 1858 by David Harcourt to it's last real owners, only
sketchy dates and names fill these pages. Searches are made and inquires are posted,
but for the most part, these people filled an important role in Northwest Missouri, only
to be forgotten on an obituary page in some small local newspaper.
