An Enduring Landmark

This beautiful Italianate-style Inn
was built by Abner Hitchcock in 1866 on speculation that a railroad spur would come through Cherry Hill and travelers would need a place to stay. The railroad never came, and Hitchcock lost the building to creditors in 1870. Purchased by the Gunn family in 1884, it was turned into a thriving general store where neighbors gathered to share news and trade their farm goods for store-bought items. On Saturday nights the second floor rocked with live music and country contra dancing.
