Collective History
Stories of the Colonial Inn

Overview


The Colonial Inn has been a historical icon for decades. Located in the heart of downtown Hillsborough, North Carolina, the inn is well known for its grand columns, long stretched veranda, and southern-style food. Serving as a meeting place, boarding house, hotel, and restaurant, the centuries-old hallways have carried the echoes of laughter and cheers from the many celebrations and family-style meals. With gumption and resilience, the inn has survived days of war, fire, hurricanes, bankruptcy, and neglect. Rumors of the inn's extensive history have long since been told, from the hauntings of Cornwallis to the origination date of 1759. While some tales proved to be folklore, the inn has a great depth of stories to share, many of which are captured in this book.
