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 Colorado Springs, and their daughter, Taylor is a teacher in Wylie ISD in the Dallas area.
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.
