The property upon which this Inn stands
was acquired by
James A. Paxton in 1810.
Paxton and subsequent nineteenth century
owners of this building operated it as an Inn.
Lawyers and townspeople gathered here.

In 1918, the Mason County Mutual Telephone
Company purchased the site. For the next 49 years,
various telephone businesses owned this property.

In 1967 ownership of the building passed
to the Limestone Heritage Foundation, Inc.,
agents for the Limestone Chapter, Daughters
of the American Revolution. In 1997 ownership
was transferred to Limestone Chapter, DAR.
Since 1967, the Chapter has used the Inn as
a museum and Chapter house.
