Facility:Hunter-Dawson State Historic Site
Description:William and Amanda Hunter ran successful family enterprises in the thriving Mississippi River town of New Madrid, including a dry goods store and a floating store used to peddle goods to other towns. In 1859, they began planning their home, which took nearly a year to complete. William died before the house was complete, but Amanda and her seven children moved into the house in 1860-61. Today, visitors can take guided tours of the home, which is restored to the 1860-1880 period and features nine fireplaces. Most of the original furnishings purchased by Amanda Hunter remain, including a large collection of Mitchell and Rammelsberg furniture.
