History of The Carriage Lane Inn
The street the Inn is located on was the Carriage Lane to the Maney family home, now the tourist attraction, Oakland Historic House Museum. Battles of the Civil War were fought on the Property. Once the Civil War was over and the money was gone, the Maney family sold the only thing they had left, the land. That's where the Inn came in. The Inn was built in 1885 by Ira D. Miller. The property served as a middle-class family home, a beautiful Victorian with a lovely front porch. The property has been through a lot of changes in its life. For about 50 years, the houses were rental property and that was hard on the property. It was then converted to Carriage Lane Inn Guesthouse. Carriage Lane Inn was purchased by Darrell and Victoria Patrick in the summer of 2013. The original reception house and sister houses have been updated for weddings, events, vacation rentals, or overnight guests.
