Emerson House Bed & Breakfast - At the turn of the 20th century one of the most prominent families in town lived in the eclectic, mostly Greek Revival, home at the corner of Main Street and Emerson Avenue. The home was previously owned by Samuel Richards and bought by Albert C. Emerson, soon after his marriage in 1855. His sons, James and Louis were responsible for creating hundreds of jobs, in industries as diverse as lumber, paper and the manufacture of cloth and clothing, and were involved in electric power generation, municipal water and even tourism. Both became State Senators; Louis went on to become a U.S. Congressman. A century later their home, totally restored, became one of the premier bed and breakfasts in Warrensburg. Faith Buck, with the assistance of her father, Herb Tietjen, exposed hardwood floors and concealed fireplaces, and restored woodwork and fixtures. They opened for business in June, 2001.
