Circa 1869. Completely restored, this historic Victorian mansion was built in 1869 for a wealthy riverboat captain. Listed in the National Register, some of the original details include black walnut front doors, imported marble fireplaces, and a grand staircase with hand-carved mahogany. The architectural design was copied by the state for the current governor's mansion. Spanning more than seven acres in a quiet setting in rural Missouri River country, relax on one of the porches and bird watch. Sleep comfortably in a spacious guest bedroom or suite with a fireplace and double Jacuzzi. After a satisfying breakfast ride a bike on the Katy Trail to the state park.

Historic Interest

Begun on the banks of the Missouri River in 1864 and completed in 1869 by riverboat baron Capt. Joseph Kinney, this magnificent Second Empire Baroque mansion served as the model for Missouri's Governor's Mansion. Built of the finest materials, cypress and brick, eleven Carerra marble fireplaces from Italy- from the same quarry from which Michaelangelo obtained marble for his fabulous works- handcarved mahogany grand staircase, 300-pound walnut doors, and the 1844 Chickering grand piano which graced the parlor for Rivercene's first family remains there today.
