Staveleigh House History
Chris and Mike are the new owners of the inn whose original structure was first built for a young minister from Dartmouth in 1818. That minister, James Bradford, was the third pastor of Old Parish Church. He lived there for 25 years with his wife and seven children. The original building, which was a plain colonial, was half the size of the current house.
In the 1890s, Harry Andrew Staveleigh bought the house, modernized and expanded it, built the grand staircase and added the ornate hearth and fireplace mantle. He had the name Staveleigh carved into the mantle. Over the years, improvements have been made in keeping with its traditional style. Private baths have been added, the kitchen remodeled and furnishings chosen to assure a warm and inviting B&B experience.
