Historic Architecture

Historic Architecture

The Blackburn Inn is marked by a rich and historic past, as it was once an integral part of the Western State Hospital. As it stands now, the Inn exudes a distinctive and unmistakably American look – characterized by red brick, whitewashed wood trim, classical moldings, and dramatic, light-filled hallways.

Take a step back in time as you enter through our welcoming entrance and ascend our grand, character-filled staircase. In its restoration, Blackburn Inn has consciously blended architecture, design, and landscape to create a distinctly welcoming environment. Designed to continue to inspire and awaken our guests, our hotel in Staunton is punctuated by its ability to leave a “powerful, positive influence”.
