FAIRFIELD, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania inn that dates back to 1757 and has sheltered famous guests such as Patrick Henry and Robert E Lee has been sold for $700,000.
The (Hanover) Evening Sun (http://bit.ly/SKBErw ) says the winning bid by Katherine Bigler of Orrtanna for the Fairfield Inn in Adams County was $50,000 more than her original price at Saturday afternoon's auction.
Bigler, the 27th owner of the inn, said she was attracted by the history of one of America's oldest inns.
She said she has no immediate plans for changes at the property.
