There once was a young woman, named Victoria, who lived in a beautiful home along the Missouri River. She had come to Jefferson City to work for a state representative and found she loved living in this lovely town. She especially loved living in the charming home with such a rich history. As the years went by, she dreamed of owning this home and turning it into something special.
Fast forward twenty years, and Victoria has made her dreams come true. If you are from Jefferson City, then you have probably driven by or seen pictures of Cliff Manor Inn. The big white house with the hunter green trim is one of those stately buildings that adds to the charm and character of Jefferson City. A few months ago Victoria purchased the home and has become the owner and caretaker of this delightful B & B, now called Victoria's Place by the River.
We met up with Victoria at the B & B to talk about her new business venture and to find out more about the events going on there. If you didn't know, Victoria's Place by the River is now open all year and hosts yoga classes, oil classes, knitting and quilting retreats, astrology retreats, and live concerts. We are excited to introduce to you Victoria Hanrahan.
Q. How long have you lived in Jefferson City?

A. Being able to be as creative as I want and collaborate with other small businesses and women owned businesses.
Q. Do you have any other businesses? If so, what are they?
