ABOUT "Captain Fairfield Inn "
HISTORY: Captain James Fairfield built his Federal-style mansion in 1813-1815, after he had been released from British imprisonment at Dartmoor Prison during the War of 1812. It was a wedding present to James Fairfield and his bride, Lois, from his father-in-law. Captain Fairfield, his wife Lois and his family enjoyed living here together for 5 years until he died of pneumonia. After being a private residence for many years, it became a Bed and Breakfast Inn in 1991, and made a name for itself as being a romantic get away for couples and newlyweds. "The inn provides a wonderful getaway for those romantic special occasions; weddings, honeymoons, an anniversary, or any other time when romance is in the air!"
