About the Silas Griffith Inn

In 1891, Senator Silas L. Griffith built this estate as a wedding gift for his new bride, Katherine Tiel. Silas was Vermont's first millionaire and "Lumber Baron". The architecture and craftsmanship is amazing, with hand-carved cherry woodwork, birch and maple floors, embossed tin ceilings, carved birds-eye maple mantles, stained glass windows, and original beams throughout the property. Custom designed fireplaces adorn the original dining room and music room, with antique Victorian story tiles.
