Move yourself to the head of the class by staying at the The Davie School Inn, one of the largest bed and breakfasts in Illinois. This historic 1910 building served as a public school until it was closed in 1996 and sat empty until it was bought by Gary and Andrea Dahmer (present owners) in 2002. The Dahmers have spent many hours both restoring and remodeling the Inn to include all the modern conveniences, while retaining the genuine atmosphere of the old school house. Each room still has an original chalk board and book case. The original hardwood floors still show where the student desks left their marks. Each room also has a whirlpool tub and air conditioning, not something you would find in a grade school class room. Downtown Anna is also a short walk from the Inn. Visit unique shops, antique stores, and dining. For those who wish to experience more of Southern Illinois, Tunnel Hill Bike Trail, hiking, boating and other historic attractions await. You will find them all within a 20 minute drive. Visit the historic buildings of Anna and the surrounding area, including Stinson Memorial Library, the Lincoln-Douglas Square (Jonesboro, Illinois), Kornthal Church, the Bald Knob Cross and many more.

MAKE IT AN HISTORIC STAY is a human-curated, invitation only presentation of select historic lodging accommodations, including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges in the United States.

Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably significant to world history with respect to their architecture, engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location, design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.

Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.

They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging, excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.

Sadly, countless historically significant structures have been (and continue to be) lost forever.

Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.

When you travel, use to discover Historic Stays in and around your destination(s).
