  • Bath & Inn History

    The city of Bath has a great and extensive history that is tied with the arrival of English navigator, George Weymouth, in the Kennebec River in 1605. Around 200 years later in the 1840s, the Inn at Bath was built in the midst of the city's shipbuilding boom, where it continues to sit in the heart of Bath's residential Historic District. It wasn't until around the winter of 1989 that the home was converted into a bed and breakfast.
