South Farms Inn and Litchfield Springs Co. correspondence, 1904
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: Four letters (2013-129-0) concerning the hotel and business at the South Farms Inn property in Morris, Conn. Originally a boarding house owned by Horatio Benton, it was known as the South Farms Inn in 1898 and into the early 1900s. Owned by the Litchfield Springs Co. of New York for a few years starting in 1901, it was hailed as a health resort with medicinal mineral springs. Some of the spring waters were bottled and sold. Plans to develop the resort into another Saratoga Springs type resort never materialized; liens and attachments were placed on the property and after various mortgages, it was sold to the White Memorial Foundation in 1913.
