Happy Acres was built over 150 years ago. Here's a lookback over our history:

The Georgetown County View Estates was built in 1869 by Elisha W. Brown a Sedalia banker. Mr. Brown died in 1870 and was buried on the 80 acres. The County of Pettis bought the house and the 80 acres in 1894 to be used as a poor farm.

In 1949, this lovely estate became known as Buena Vista and was used as a halfway home for wards of the county.

However, it was abandoned in 1988. In 1990, the property was purchased from the county and today operates as Georgetown Country View Estates Bed and Breakfast.

Now, this estate is under new ownership once again. As we make strides toward upgrading and expanding the services, we also strive to keep the history alive. This farm home turned county house turned bed and breakfast now claims the name of Happy Acres. But remembering the past, we've given the name Buena Vista to our event venue. We hope this estate always retains its historic reputation by continuing to create fond memories for all its guests for years to come.
