About The Innkeepers

Tommy and Tracey Engel purchased Kennedy Manor in August 2016 with the hopes of bringing life and beauty back to the historic home.  After raising their 2 children in Waxahachie, Texas, and traveling to Jefferson for the past 21 years, they made the decision to purchase the home that they once stayed in.  

For the past 24+ years, Tommy has worked for Gerdau Steel, and Tracey has spent 20+ years in healthcare management.  Their son, Jacob, lives in the Austin area, and their daughter, Taylor is completing her degree in Geology at UT Dallas.  

Tommy and Tracey always wanted to begin a business together.  The home that Tracey once stated ‘we will own’ was available, and the empty nesters agreed it was perfect timing to begin a new adventure.
