From rooms named after the likes of Patrick Henry, Confederate generals and more, the Historic Fairfield Inn existed before the American Revolution. From 1757 to the present, it's served as a Civil War hospital and a stop along the Underground Railroad.

Today, it exists as one of the five-oldest continuously operated inns in America.
