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.
Tracey continues to work in healthcare management in East Texas, and Tommy now works full time running the Bed & Breakfast, as well as a tour guide for our new venture, Historic Tours of Jefferson. Their son, Jacob is a bartender in the Austin area, 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.
