Historic Morehead Inn
This historic Southern mansion is widely acclaimed as "one of the most beautiful examples of early 20th-century architecture in the city." Visitors to the present day Bed & Breakfast are equally compelled by the personal history of those who once called it home.
C.C. Coddington’s business prospered, paralleling the growth of the city itself. Ironically, it was the streetcar, not the automobile, that first made it possible for society’s well-to-do to move to new communities known as suburbs. In 1917, Coddington hired London-born architect William Peeps to design his home to be located on an ample corner lot at East Morehead Street and Berkeley Avenue in the heart of the suburb known as Dilworth.

THE VANLANDINGHAM ESTATE

Ralph and Susie Harwood-VanLandingham built the VanLandingham Estate in 1913. Ralph moved his wife and twin son and daughter to Charlotte from Georgia. His decision evolved when his father invited him to join his cotton brokerage firm in Charlotte. Though already quite wealthy, the move occurred at the time of the big textile boom, making the cotton brokerage industry and the VanLandinghams even more prosperous. It was actually Susie that helped draw the plans for the house, that was designed for entertaining. Historic Inn | Southern Mansion |
