The inn’s history begins in 1689 with the original home that was owned by Mr. Thomas Bracy. Over the following centuries, the property changed hands numerous times, with new homes being constructed to replace the previous ones. The current home was built by Robert Jordan in 1863 in a Victorian-era Italianate style. The property was bought by Ray and Margaret in 1996, where they now run their bed and breakfast.
