A Little History of Green Cove Springs
The Green Cove Springs area was first developed by George E. Clarke in 1816 when he was provided land, under a Spanish land grant to build a sawmill. Green Cove Springs was established in 1854 as White Sulfur Springs. Renamed in 1866, it became the county seat in 1871.
The Inn has experienced major renovations lasting through 2006 and 2007. The only original part remaining of the Inn is its outer shell. The original Inn was a “Motor Court”, a “Florida staple” in the hotel/motel industry from the 1940’s through the 1960’s.
The majority of these motor courts have been torn down. We wanted to preserve this old motor court personality while upgrading it to today’s standards. The Inn is in essence this century’s version of a motor court if they existed today.
