The Aquila Barn is tucked away on the 400 acres of Eagle Fork Farm. Featuring breath-taking scenery, distinctive character, as well a rich historical background, The Aquila Barn is a perfect balance of rustic charm and modern elegance.
Rich in historical significance, Eagle Fork was once a small bustling settlement in the 1800s. The settlement was a stagecoach stop with a General Store, Blacksmith, and the “Drover’s Inn.” In the mid, 1800’s hogs, cattle, and turkeys were driven down what is now Eagle Fork lane by Drovers. The 1850’s Brick House, also known as Drover’s Inn, was built to provide room + board to the Drovers before their last stop in Gilmore, Missouri. The Brick house, which also served as a US Post office is still on the property to this day. In 1871, G.W.L. Meyer purchased the farm and moved his family up from Augusta, Missouri. Eagle Fork remains a strong family farm to this day. Charles + Laura Meyer continue to keep the historical charm throughout Eagle Fork Pumpkin Farm, and now the new Aquila Barn.
Aquila Barn is the perfect mix of the Meyer and Fischer Family.
Owners of the Historic Eagle Fork Farm, Charles + Laura wanted to incorporate the property’s rich historical history throughout the barn. Aquila barn features windows from the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, as well as local antiques that add to the historical charm.
Kirk Fischer began working on the Eagle Fork Farm when he was 12 years old. He continued to work on the property, and soon met his wife, Taylor. The Fischer’s built their home and are now raising their family on the historical property.
Kirk Fischer focused on the expansive outdoor space. The large, partially covered patio is accompanied by a premier indoor/outdoor sound system. A cozy firepit and elegantly strung lighting make for the perfect outdoor space for any event.
