Jason and Kelly Rose purchased the property in June 2021 and completed extensive updates and renovations to all guest and public spaces. Kelly was born and raised in Du Quoin and moved to Phoenix where she spent 10 years working for Marriott Hotels. Her husband Jason has been in the classic car auction event operations business for 20 years, including VP of Operations for Barrett-Jackson Auction Company. They made the decision to return to Du Quoin and raise their two children, Jake age four and Ava age 5 months.
The vision for the home has changed and they will welcome bringing events, meetings, gatherings, celebrations, bridal and baby showers, etc. In addition, the house will have four rooms available for guests needing overnight accommodations. Part of the first floor has been renovated as the Olivia Rose Boutique offering casual women’s clothing, home decor and gifts.
