Sewanee Inn ribbon-cutting held

ribbon cutting

The new Sewanee Inn officially opened today with an 8 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony. About two dozen business and community leaders from both Monteagle and Franklin County attended the ceremony organized by the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce. In brief remarks, Franklin County Mayor Richard Stewart commended the university for its progressive leadership. Vice-Chancellor John McCardell expressed his hope that the inn would be a resource for the entire county and Plateau, as well as for the university. The inn’s reopening created about 50 jobs for area residents, with twice as many rooms as the previous inn.

The inn had a soft opening last week and hosted some families during Commencement weekend. The restaurant opened for breakfast on Thursday, May 8, and the bar began serving drinks on Friday, May 9. Learn more about the new inn, or make a reservation, here.
