The in is located in the heart of downtown Corinth, Mississippi within walking distance of amazing restaurants, boutiques, shops, museums and galleries. Founded in 1854, Corinth is deep rooted in Civil War history. It's proximity to the Tennessee River and the railroads made it of great strategic value during the Civil War. The Battle of Corinth was fought October 3-4, 1862. With the railroads, Corinth played a huge role in the Battle of Shiloh, which was the turning point in the war.
The Generals' Quarters Inn features a beautifully restored Victorian home built circa 1872. Located just 84 miles east of Memphis and 124 miles west of Huntsville. The Inn is rated as one of the Top Ten Bed and Breakfasts' in the state. The Inn is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens featuring hundred year old Oak trees, Magnolia trees, roses and azaleas. Come and relax and watch the world go by from one of the many comfortable benches, swings or chairs which can be found in the gardens.
The Generals' Quarters Inn was built as St. Jude's Episcopal Church in 1869 on the foundation of the original church destroyed on the retreat from Shiloh. The perisher's used their land as collateral and it was taken by the bank when they were unable to make payments.
In 1872, it was purchased by A.B. Dillworth, treasurer of the Mississippi confederacy for his daughter. Fanny's wedding to Confederate Major George Washington Bynum. She converted the church into a home.
In 1910, it was purchased by Judge Linden. He died there in 1920.
The next owners were Mr. and Mrs. Ramer who purchased it as their home. Mr. Ramer was VP of the Saville Duvall Coffee Company. The company later became Maxwell House Coffee after a merger with another company. Mrs. Ramer ran the home as a boarding house after her husband's death.
In the 1960s, the house was purchased by WO Hathcock (known for involvement with the notorious state line mob) and was used as a bordello until the 1980s.
The house was is great disrepair when it was purchased in 1985 by a local realtor, doctor and judge. They began the renovations and used it as a restaurant and bar naming it The Generals' Quarters to honor the over 200 Generals who occupied Corinth.
Before Luke and Charlotte moved to Mississippi, the two were employed by the Marriott Corporation. Charlotte was an area manager responsible for operations in five states, while Luke worked as an accomplished chef.
"We love Corinth - it is everything we have ever dreamed of. We own a business and live in the heart of downtown. There is, without a question, no place we would rather be."
