The Ballantine Hotel was originally built in 4 phases from 1826-1890 near the Santa Fe Trail on the Missouri River bluff in downtown Boonville. It’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was occupied by river boat passengers when it was a hotel. The restoration and renovation project consisted of the adaptive reuse and renovation into a class ‘A’ office space in 2003. It was leased to the State of Missouri and other private tenants after the grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony with Vaughn X. Prost and State and City officials assisting the ceremony. The entire town was so pleased to see the building restored and completed by Prost Builders.
