Make a Northwest Missouri bed and breakfast your lodging choice when traveling in this region of the state. The northwest is rich in culture and history whether it is the Amish community of Jamesport or the early American history of the Pony Express in St. Joseph.
The Amish people came to the Jamesport area and settled in 1953. Now, it is the largest Amish community in Missouri with approximately 165 families. Living in modest homes on rural farms, the Amish can be seen traveling by means of horse drawn vehicles on the rolling hills and countryside. The town hosts a large number of Amish shops and activities that cater to tourists wanting to experience earlier times.
St. Joseph is famous for being the place where the Pony Express began and Jesse James died. The Pony Express National Museum illustrates its history, and there is a bronze statue of a rider commemorating the pioneer spirit
The home of Northwest Missouri State University is in Maryville. It is primarily a liberal arts college, and the design of the campus is based on Forest Park in St. Louis which is now the Missouri State Arboretum.
Make a reservation with a member of the Bed and Breakfast Inns of Missouri in the northwest region of the state and be assured that it is inspected and approved.
