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.

THE HISTORY

Type your paragraph here.

The Rice-Tremonti Home dates from 1844 and is one of only seven antebellum homes remaining in Jackson County. Over its 175-year history the house was occupied primarily by three families: The Rice Family, (1844-1903) the Lowe Family (1908-1935) and the Tremonti family (1935-1987).


Over that span its residents witnessed the Westward expansion, via the three pioneer trails -- The Santa Fe, Oregon and California.


It survived the ravages of the Civil War and participated in the emancipation of slaves.
