Gore was a breath of FRESH air as a kid, This home is where my Family Genalogy started in 1868. GGGrandfather Oetting, released the slaves, who remained to help run the farm and as time passed so did they, starting families and there own farms, but always there to help him. There is alot of history behind this old home, Which you could feal it in the Air as I do and did in 2007.

Connie, I wish I would have known that historical anecdote before my trip through there this past summer! Learning historical tidbits from locals and the like make for even more enjoyable trips...

The Quinn Family from Gore, Missouri on 12/16/2008 04:50 PM:
The Quinn family purchased the historical town of Gore, Missouri December 1, 2008. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. We are trying to restore the town to origional. If you have any information on the grave that sits on the property bearing the name of a 3 and 1/2 year old boy by the name of Christopher Benjerman I would like to know. Christophers mothers name was Caroline and his fathers name was Henry. We love this town as we also have family who were from neighboring areas.

Most Respectfully,

Me Quinn

To: Me Quinn

I grew up in St. Louis and my dad had cousins in the Gore area. Their names were Ace and Francis Cullom. We also had kin named Nadine. I do not have her kast name. They were all decendants of Pauline Kimmick, one of a family of German immigrants who cane to the US in the 1850's. I remember the general store/Post Office and the old hand pumps for gasoline. How is the town doing...I thought it was lost years ago.

Kathy Reinhardt Bacigalupo from Gore Missouri on 03/31/2011 11:17 PM:
Noticed the Oetting house in Gore was listed for sale 3/3/11. My grandparents Ed & Pauline Reinhardt owned the store, post office, gas pumps and lived above the store. My parents Emmet & Amelia Reinhardt built the house on the hill above Gore which is now Lost Creek Winery to open in May 20ll. It was a beautiful place to grow up. My heart still belongs in GORE.

Connie Madden Raborn on 04/17/2011 09:40 PM:
Kathy know just how you feel, my fondest memories was of Gore and my family that lived there. We are trying to find out about the sale, do you have any pictures of store and etc.

What happened to the Quinn family? Anybody have any more information on Gore and what was there?

Betty Cullom Harrison from Overland Park, Kansas on 11/26/2011 04:56 PM:
I grew up about a mile north of Gore. My parents were Ace and Frances Cullom. I walked
to Gore almost daily for the mail. My aunt and
uncle lived there and three cousins. Darrell
Reinhardt still lives in the neighborhood.

Heather and David Jacus on 05/29/2012 08:48 AM:
My husband and I purchased Gore in August of 2011. Sounds funny to say that we bought a town, but I guess we did. We are restoring the house first and then will work on the other buildings. We found some old receipts and orders from as far back as 1896 in the attic of the mercantile. Our plan is to give some items to the Katy Trail State Park so they can create an information board. If anyone has any pictures of the town I would love to make a copies to give to them as well. We have been working on the house since about October and are making progress. All the systems and part of the roof had to be replaced, so from the outside it does not look like we are doing much but it is coming together. Please call us we would love to learn more about the history. Heather Jacus 314-724-4238

Just wondered if there is still being work done in Gore. We'd be interested to hear more updates.

Rebecca lyon from Columbia mo on 04/23/2016 04:41 AM:
I remember going to visit the fretted Oscar and Otto oetting many times as a teenager, when Charles and dorathy oetting would come from Tucson az to visit in the 70,s . Was so sad when I heard that someone came in and stole most of the stuff out of their home when the last one passed away.. When they owned the town they had just closed the doors to the stores and every thing was just like it was so long ago. I gave many pictures of the place. It was part of the family for many years.

Gordon Sieckmann from Freeport, FL on 07/01/2016 12:04 PM:

Groeber Reunion
Betty Cullom Harrison from Overland Park, Kansas on 04/24/2012 10:50 AM:
I am more than willing to share all the Cullom
info. with your family.

James McMillen from Foster CIty CA on 08/07/2016 01:15 PM:
Just read your info. My father was John (Jack) McMillen and he was related to Ace Culuom through their grandmothers who were Kimmich's. My family visited he and Francis several times through the 50's and 60's. I probably could not find their farm now. Who ownes it now?

Had a contact recently with a Siekmann on family histore. He is writing a book on the Kimmichs".

RHR from KC on 09/29/2015 06:21 PM:
The Lost Creek Winery is a great place to stop. It is about 7 miles east of McKittrick or 9 miles west of Treloar and then up the gravel road about 0.3 miles. Tom and Chris are great hosts. You won't be disappointed.

Gore traffic
Rider from Rolla on 06/17/2011 09:34 PM:
Folks from Gore are driving private cars and trucks on the Katy trail. (6-7-11)

Lisa from Jefferson City on 07/02/2011 02:19 PM:
Rider from Rolla, I'm not sure where Gore is, but I've learned this in the past month: When small county roads are flooded, people who live or work in the area are allowed to use the Katy Trail to drive around the flooded local roads. I encountered this in mid-June east of Hartsburg, when some small roads were flooded but the trail was not.

Makes sense to me. It's the opposite of the "share the road" mantra, but is our way of sharing.

Land owners can use the Katy trail for vehicles as they are not to be denied access to their property.

Cullom postings and other historical info
Terri Hulsey from Port Isabel, TX (now Wentzville, MO) on 01/15/2012 01:34 AM:
I was pleased to come across some of the comments about Gore. My great-grandfather was Gustave Groeber and we have lineage tying into the Culloms. I would be interested in exchanging info and inviting Cullom family to our family reunion that takes place in September usually. Contact via email terhulsey@yahoo.com
Thanks! Terri (Strunk) Hulsey

Betty Cullom Harrison from Overland Park, Kansas on 04/08/2012 07:46 PM:
My Cullom family history is Tilman Cullom, Granville Cullom, James Cullom and my father,
Ace Cullom. I do have all of the Cullom history.
