Abstract:

The Cornett Farm is located in Linn County, Missouri. It is owned and operated by the College of Agriculture, University of Missouri-Columbia, as the Forage Systems Research Center, one of six out-state Agricultural Experiment Stations. The University acquired the 1,200 acre farm in 1965 through a lease agreement between the Cornett sisters, Bracy and Winnie. Since then, the University has conducted research with beef cows and calves operating at business headquarters on the site. With the acreage, the University also acquired the farmhouse the Cornett family built. Stipulations of the contract required the University own the property until 17 February 1989 and "preserve and maintain the furniture, furnishings and other contents of such residence as long as the University owns the Farm". It was the desire of Winifred Cornett that the home "be open to the public during hours set by the University of Missouri officials as an example of the type of dwelling and furnishings of a rural family during the later part of the nineteenth century and the first part of the twentieth century". With her interests in mind, this study was conducted to evaluate the home through funding by the College of Agriculture in collaboration with the Missouri Cultural Heritage Center, Graduate School and of Office of Research. Documentation and analysis are intended to determine in what manner the Cornett-Moore house and furniture are a cultural expression of the family. The characteristics of the furniture and architectural entities are investigated as a response of the Cornett family to geographical, economic, social and technical influences in a northern Missouri rural community during the late nineteenth century. The purpose of the study is to learn about the individuals, dates, and regional patterns and materials associated with the property. Objectives of the study focus on four main areas: (1) the local history of Linneus, Missouri, (2) the Cornett-Moore family genealogy, (3) the architecture of the Cornett home, and (4) the furnishings. In regard to local history, findings indicate information about the community in which the Cornett-Moore family interacted. For example, early settlement patterns, merchandising sources, and travel routes help explain how and why the family's material history evolved to its current state. Because a family dwelling is considered a carrier of culture, an understanding of family members often reveals the lifestyle maintained at the setting. Household needs and behavior of the family members is explored to determine how the influence of heritage, size, and roles, may have affected the home life of the Cornett family. As an example of vernacular architecture and historic construction methods, the Cornett home also allows interpretation of the spatial organization, the architectural style, and social usage of the site. The final topic of the documentation is the classification of the collection of furniture in the home. Attention is devoted to determining the acquisition of furniture and the analysis of style, maker, date, and material.
