Located approximately 35 miles north of the Lake of the Ozarks in Central Missouri, Weaver's Country Market, Inc., is located at 13920 Market Road, Versailles, which is actually in the village of Excelsior, nine miles northeast of Versailles.
Weaver's Country Market had its beginning in November 1972 when Eli and Anna Weaver, together with their family, relocated from Eastern Pennsylvania to Central Missouri.
The building purchased in Excelsior was originally part of a hotel which had been located at a coal pit three miles east of the store's present location. The original part of the building with its weathered hardwood floor is still in use today.
