What is the history behind Memories Retreats Beginnings?

Slowly stroll down Brady Street Historic District and discover the picturesque Memories Retreats Bed and Breakfast. Listen to the creaking sound of the iron gate as you pass through the beautiful garden and rest a moment on the inviting front porch before you begin your enchanted stay.....Memories Retreats where memories begin.

Please rest awhile on the wicker porch swing and then come on in to see my grandmother's home. The house has seen lots of love, laughter, and happiness. Great-Grandmother and Great-Grandfather raised seven children in this home.

This is how the house looked when Great-Grandmother first moved in. The house was built by Herman Briggs in 1903. Mr. Briggs was a gentlemen's farmer who built the home for his new bride. This area of Attica was considered the suburbs and many farmers would build winter homes so their children could be educated in the Attica school system and then return home in the spring to work on their farms. Mr. Briggs managed farms in Fountain and Warren Counties. Upon the death of his lovely wife he sold the home to my grandparents, Isaac A. and Alta Meeker's Jones. The house has remained in our family ever since. I hope you will enjoy visiting The Memories Retreats Bed & Breakfast and our new Carriage House....Memories Retreats where memories begin.
