What do you do after your years of service in the US military are over? If you're this army colonel, you build a plantation-style home in Missouri which is now considered one of its most historic homes.

This is the home built in 1958 by Colonel W A Roffe. The story of how he wanted to build a ranch in Missouri after his service in the US Army made the papers back then as you can see in this article that is available on Ebay.

The home is an interesting combination of a lot of styles. The bones appear to be the same as the colonel envisioned in 1958 when he built it. There are also a lot of kitchen and bathroom upgrades so whoever ends up here will likely be comfortable.

The listing shows this is a 4-bedroom, 3 1/2-bathroom home with over 4,000 square feet. It's a big house. It's not free either. The current asking price is $849,000 based on the listing realtor's website.

It's not often you get to walk in the hallowed footsteps of a US Army colonel. This Missouri home offers that opportunity.
