Spring Soup & Craft Days returns!

After two years, Rice-Tremonti's Spring Soup and Craft Days return March 19-20, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. 

But because of Covid precautions there will be no sit-down service this time. We will serve the familiar menu of homemade soups in large and small to-go containers from the rear of the house. 

Crafters will be present in force on the front lawn and in the front rooms of the house.

Come and enjoy an afternoon at Rice-Tremonti and support the preservation of this historic structure in Raytown.

The Rice-Tremonti Home dates from 1844 and was built on the Santa Fe Trail, by the Archibald Rice Family and their company of enslaved individuals. The family provided animal feed for westward travelers and was a place of respite for the travelers.

The house survived the ravaged of the Civil War and continued as an operating farm well into the 20th Century.

The Friends of the Rice-Tremonti Home Association formed in 1988 as a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization with a mission to restore and preserve this historic landmark.

The all-volunteer group holds a variety of events opening the house to the public over the year. 

While the city of Raytown holds title to the property, the Friends of Rice-Tremonti are responsible for all fund-raising, preservation activities and ongoing maintenance.
