Tasting wines at Pirtles - Weston
Tasting wines at Pirtles

I tried a few of the local wines and was very impressed. There are some good values here. Also available are a vast array of gifts for the wine lover or the chef. Aside from standard wines, Pirtle's is known for its mead (honey wine) and apple wine, made from local produce.

National Historic District - Weston
National Historic District

Much of the older section of Weston, Missouri, is included in the National Register of Historic Places. Factors in this designation were the town's importance as a Missouri River town in the mid-1800's, and the townspeoples' efforts to preserve buildings and homes with historical accuracy. Most of the buildings along the main street of town are included in the district.

Walking Tour - Willow Bend House

Built in the Federal Style in 1847 by a Kentucky entrepeneur and anti-slavery activist. Within three years, the owner was engaged to be married and enlarged the home. The plaque outside the house notes that the bricks were fired locally, but the interior's ornate woodworking was done in Philadelphia.

The Hatchery - Weston

The Hatchery

Walking Tour - The Benjamin Wood House

Built in 1845. Now a bed & breakfast known as The Hatchery. In the depression days of the 1930's, this building became an inexpensive rooming house utilized by many newly marrieds who bore children while living here. Hence the name "hatchery." Nancy and I gave our oldest daughter and her husband a night here on their fifth wedding anniversary.
