Morrison-Clark Historic Inn Review

In these two, attached 1864 Victorian town houses, antiques-filled public rooms have decorative marble fireplaces, bay windows, and medallioned ceilings, and rooms are furnished with neoclassical, French country, or Victorian pieces and have all the modern amenities. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel (or half of it, at least) first became noted in 1923 when the Women's Army and Navy League bought the Morrison home and converted it into an inexpensive place for enlisted men to stay while in town. First Lady Grace Coolidge came to the opening and over the years other First Ladies and dignitaries were visitors. American cuisine with Southern and other regional accents is served at the inn's relaxed and quiet restaurant, which has an outstanding wine selection and an outdoor patio.
