Rivercene was constructed by Captain Joseph B. Kinney, who ran a line of 21
sternwheelers up and down the Missouri River, between 1864 and 1869 and is the earliest
example of Second Empire or Baroque revival this far west.
Main Hall & Stairway
This beautiful hand-carved stairway, hewn by
European artisans of the finest mahogany, cypress and walnut, has been the place
where many memories were made--brides and debutantes presented, ladies in long
flowing dresses greeting their gentleman-callers--and Katy Trail bikers retiring
for a restful night, or a relaxing whirlpool bath.
Parlor & Dining Room
The detailed hand-painted border that surrounds the parlor
was created in the late 1800s by Captain Kinney's daughter, Cora Kinney Hurt.
Captain Kinney's family lived in the three story brick house until the last daughter
passed away in 1947. There was an auction in 1948 and most of the original furnishings
were sold. In the late '50's, Mike & Winnie Cenatiempo (Winnie was the
great-grand-daughter of Captain Kinney) started restoration on their old family home. Many
years of hard work had restored the first floor and the east side of the second floor.
In 1992, Winnie sold Rivercene, restoration continued. Rivercene Bed & Breakfast opened in May of 1993, only to close
as The Great Flood devastated the mansion two months later.
Many volunteers came to help clean mountains of mud,
and revive her once again, and restoration continued. In, January, 1994, Rivercene was reopened as a Bed & Breakfast.
