HAYRIDE  AT  YELLOW  PINE  INN

spr2005.jpg

Tucked away among oaks and hickories the yellow Pine Inn makes the perfect hideaway! Built

in 1906 the Inn was originally a schoolhouse serving the Yellow Pine Community until 1924 when

it became a private residence. Mary and Bill McKinney opened the Inn after his Mom died.
