Our historic home is 100 years old this year and in celebration we baked the “old lady” a cake and gave her a new coat of paint so come and visit and wish her a Happy Birthday , we know she’d appreciate it! We’ll also show you the special “secret” inscription on a house wall that proves she’s 100 yrs young as we have no deeds to the house.
We also are continuing our free upgrade program for all returning guests. You may book the Presley Room and end up staying in our deluxe suite for the same price! How good would that be? Subject to availability.
To make it even more memorable don’t forget these special treats including Afternoon Tea, and our new Romantic Getaway package
See you soon!!
Born and raised in Northern England, Andrew and Mary Walker met in college, and followed careers in engineering and teaching respectively. Their work took them to four continents in the 1980s, before a permanent move “across the pond” to the USA in 1991.
They raised their family in Pittsburgh, PA, where Andrew ran a large geotechnical engineering company and Mary worked in early childhood education. They became U.S. citizens in 2003.
The Colonial Revival-Style frame house was built in 1919 for Dr. Ernest Stokes. Dr. Stokes was the resident surgeon at Salisbury’s first hospital, the Whitehead-Stokes Sanatorium. The house was later home to the prominent Snider family for 59 years. It is one of Salisbury’s finest houses and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The house features unique craftsmanship — from the leaded glass to the cedar closets to the quarter-sawn oak floors.
Located within five blocks of Main Street, the house is a short stroll to numerous churches, antique stores, theatres, restaurants, bars, and homes of historic significance. These homes attract visitors from far and wide, especially for the annual homes tour, OctoberTour, organized by the Historic Salisbury Foundation.
