History of the Location

Bullskin Creek is a piece of Missouri history.  It started off as a plantation farm over 100 years ago. The Bussey’s bought the property in 1986 and made this place their home.   After years of hard work, Bullskin Creek has become a destination place.  People from all over drive by to take pictures of the property because of its pristine setting in the Ozarks.  Ervin and Shirley have had many gatherings on the property from church picnics to family reunions.   In 2012, we had our first wedding here on the dock overlooking the spring fed ponds.  Matt and Ashley Carpenter said, “I do.”   It was a dream come true, which made us realize the potential of Bullskin Creek. We decided to share that dream and in 2014 we broke ground on our new wedding and event venue.

Bullskin Creek is a Christian based business. When the property was bought in 1986, Ervin and Shirley felt so blessed that they had the opportunity to buy it. They dedicated the property to God. Since then there has been countless church picnics and other church related activities on the property. Ervin and Ashley both were baptized in the spring fed pond, as well as other family members and friends. Our family stands firm in our religious beliefs. God is first and foremost in our lives.

Genesis 2:22-24
Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man. For this reason man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh
