About the Innkeeper Barb Gavron
has been the “helping hands" person for the mid-west assisting future
and new innkeepers for over 25 years and has an onsite innkeepers
training program. Always entrepreneurial by nature. Arkansas Off the
Beaten Path by Patti DeLano says "She knows every street and path and is
a goldmine of information....."
I collect a little bit of
everything, art, folk art, Coca Cola, blue bottles, cast iron stove
parts, old Ponds jars which you will find buried in the garden pathway
along with other items that were found on the grounds.
I discovered that part of living
in a small village is that you don't throw things away because you might
just might need it someday. I don't throw things away, I just buy
another house to put them into. My degree is a BFA in interior design
which I did for two years in Atlanta at Rich's, the largest and most
famous store in the South for over 125 years, then I taught art in the
public schools grades 7-12 for 9 years....three years in Atlanta and six
in Houston. I managed some art galleries in between the two jobs.
After teaching I became a
remodeling contractor in Houston. One Fall I visited Eureka and the love
affair with town began. I bought 11 Singleton in 1983. Later I bought 10
and 9 Singleton and had monthly renters in both with my office in the
first floor unit at #10.
