Beaumont Inn: Two Centuries of Service - John David Myles
Beaumont Inn: Two Centuries of Service traces the property’s evolution from the Greenville Springs, an early watering place, through three-quarters of a century as a school for young women, first as the Greenville Institute, later Daughters College, and lastly Beaumont College. When it was no longer sustainable as an educational institution, it became the Beaumont inn, famed across the nation for its food, hospitality, and the dedication of the Goddard and Dedman families have devoted to its survival and the enjoyment of their guests. This book is lavishly illustrated and will be cherished by those who have been guests at the inn and will tempt those who have never fallen under its magic to make a reservation without delay.
