Description of The Buxton Inn
The Buxton Inn is located in Granville, 35 mi East of Columbus,
Ohio in United States. This historic building is famous for its
paranormal activities with many witnesses claiming supernatural
presence of the dead guests.
Buxton Inn was originally called the Buxton Tavern
and it was built by 1812 by Orrin Granger. Today, the Buxton Inn is
oldest continuously running inn in Granville, Ohio. Aside from being
an hotel, Buxton Inn building also served as Granville’s first post
office and a stagecoach stop. The Buxton Inn was visited by many
notable historic figures including President William Harrison
himself. After Orrin Granger died, ownership of the Buxton inn
changed. Although it went through several owners, it never closed
down because of its popularity.
In 1829, more additions were
constructed for the building. In the 1850s, the Buxton inn was
purchased by James W. Dilley and it was renamed to “The Dilley
House”. Major Buxton and his wife acquired the property in 1865.
They attracted many guests and the inn continued to thrive under
their ownership. Hotel was named after the major. After the death of
the Buxtons, retired opera singer Ethel Bounell took over the inn.
The current owners of the inn are Orville and Audrey Orr.
