Have you ever heard the saying “every ending is a new beginning?” That definitely rings true for the famous Inn on Whitworth. Originally a mercantile store in the 1800’s, the Inn on Whitworth is now a five star boutique hotel in downtown Brookhaven. However, to have a true appreciation for this quaint, sheek gem, it’s important to explore the history of this unique spot.
The Inn on Whitworth has been an abandoned mercantile store for well over a century. The goal of the hotel was to create a modern retreat, while keeping its original character. Keeping in tune with Brookhaven’s brand “a small southern town with big personality,” this hotel does exactly that.
The inn is named after Reverend Milton Jacob Whitworth, a methodist minister and early settler of Brookhaven. Reverend Whitworth is also where Whitworth College- Mississippi School of the Arts, get its name.
The inn kept true to its original character by restoring the original hardwood floors and keeping the intricate beaded ceiling. Additionally, the original walk in vault still remains, and the large sky light that canopies over the hotel lobby creates the perfect morning coffee ambiance.
The hotel is perfect for wedding parties, business retreats, or a weekend getaway for you and your spouse. For more information on this fabulous boutique hotel, and how to book your next stay visit https://www.innonwhitworth.com/about/.
