Henry Blosser House & Swiss Horse Barn – Champagne Reception

Carolyn and Dr. Arthur Elman recently enjoyed a Champagne Reception in their honor at the historic 1878 Henry Blosser House & Swiss Horse Barn. The couple received awards from the Missouri Senate and House of Representatives for the restoration of the Blosser Estate near the Historic Village of Arrow Rock. Bill Hart, Missouri Alliance for Historic Preservation, presented The McReynolds Award to the group of supporters. The four-year project was directed by interior and architectural designer Kelee Katillac. The barn will soon open as an event facility.
