Built nineteen years before the Declaration of Independence, The Fairfield Inn was originally the Mansion House of Squire Miller, an original founder of the town. In the 256 years that have passed, the Mansion House has seen many famous Americans such as Patrick Henry, Thaddeus Stevens, Generals Robert E. Lee & J.E.B.
