This large white house with double front porches is the Falmouth Hotel.

Built in 1836 in Falmouth, Missouri, it was one the finest hotels on the River. The hotel was owned by Mordecai Watts in 1879 and he moved it to Elsberry piece by piece in wagons. The old stone steps on the south end of the porch are from Falmouth was well. The porches are held up by 6 walnut posts cut from timber in “the bottoms” (between Elsberry and the River). At the time there were trees in the bottoms so big you could turn your horse around on the stumps when they were cut down.
