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.

Plus, the Friends have been busy in their kitchens baking all sorts of holiday delicacies such as pies, cakes, breads and candies. Bring your sweet tooth and pocketbook and help Rice-Tremonti for the holidays. 

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.

The Rice-Tremonti Home is available for  your small- to medium-sized get- togethers, such as receptions, birthday parties, bridal showers, family gatherings and even weddings.

Enjoy your event in an historic setting!

Facilities include two downstairs parlors, the dining room and catering kitchen. Outdoor events are also possible.
