Property Description

WELCOME TO THE 1840, THOMAS WOOD, PLANTATION STYLE HOME ON 2.2 ACRES. In 1831, Thomas Wood left Virginia seeking a better life in the west. He, his wife, 8 children & 7 slaves, left for Missouri. They arrived at Shows Spring in Franklin County that November. With winter coming on, they decided to stay there. After some settlers showed him the area, he bought a cabin & ten acres, later adding onto it reaching 2,000 Acres. He built a 4-room log house where the family lived until the large Plantation style home was built. The pine & oak in home were cut from the farm and milled theron. Bricks were also hand made on the farm. 5 fireplaces heated the home and the huge fireplace in the basement provided cooking. This Prominent Franklin Co. home retains all the historic architecture with recent updates making it ready for the next stewards of this fine home to enjoy. Outstanding primary home, Air B&B,or other. 4 car garage with loft & outbuildings complete the compound. NEARBY CONVENIENCES
