Previous Owners
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 lived on.

This site is dedicated to the memory of those past residents who undoubtedly lived life to its fullest!t se

This is not a previous owner, but actually a relitive of ours.  The Picture just looked right for the topic. 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.
