The Historic Inn was built back in 1898 by Frank Hall as a wedding gift to his wife Esther. Upon completion of the house, Frank and his workmen noticed the ground looking potentially good for a vein of gold under the house. Digging down several feet, his thoughts were correct. He never mined the vein because of his wealthy holdings from his occupation as foreman of the Dahlonega mines. Esther and Frank became the parents of Frances in 1900. Unfortunately Frank died of Typhoid Fever in 1901 and Esther moved away with her daughter to their other property. The house was purchased from the Hall estate by Henry and Bessie Smith in 1922 when they started up a boarding house with meals and lodging included in their stay.

The Carriage House was built in 1898 as a house where Captain Hall stored his carriages. The Fry family, in 1946, purchased the business from the Smiths and renovated the house turning it into their living quarters. The Carriage House is next to the Historic Inn and houses 7 guest rooms.

Today, the Welch family owns the Historic Inn and Restaurant and continues the legacy of lodging and fine southern food.
