Flour House Bakery & Coffee is a mother/daughter operation
with help from other family members such as Lou Zearing, Richard
Heaton, and Elise Swinford.
Terri Zearing grew up in Lincoln, NE and relocated to Princeton
in 1981. During her childhood, she baked alongside her mother, Kathleen,
who patiently taught her how to bake while caring for a family of eleven.
Terri’s love for baking manifested itself in after school goodies for all
her siblings, especially her six brothers. As a mother she baked for her
family, friends, and for whoever asked, or didn’t for that matter!
Sallee grew up baking with Terri and developed a great passion,
like her mother’s, for baking. To open a bakery has been a dream of Terri’s
for most of her life and when the opportunity arose, Sallee became
committed to the cause.
The Zearing family has owned 950 N. Main St. for three generations,
used most recently as Zearing Computer Tech. & Radioshack (which has
been consolidated next door) operated by Lou Zearing. The building
was originally a pharmacy and boasts original woodwork and tin ceilings
throughout the space.
Flour House is devoted to keeping with a homemade style of baking,
small batches made with care. Thank you so much for your interest in the
Flour House bakery and we hope to see you soon!
