History of the Piermont Inn
The Piermont Inn was originally established by Dr. Ross Coon in 1790 as a tavern and stagecoach stop on the old turnpike to Concord, NH. Since the town of Piermont was settled in 1768, this was the first tavern in the village area. Built in a style common to the times, it consisted of a tavern and sitting rooms downstairs, with a large Ballroom overhead. A stable for the stagecoach and traveler’s horses was available beside the main building.
The Inn was enlarged at various times during its history, and was even used for other purposes during recent periods, but always returned to its original function.
The Piermont Inn today retains its colonial architechtural style and charm, while at the same time providing the necessary conveniences of modern times.
The old Ballroom is divided into two large bedrooms with private baths. Both are furnished with Antiques.
The Carriage House has been converted into four large, pleasant rooms with private bathrooms in a summer-style atmosphere.
The Inn continues under an on-going program of maintenance and restoration to provide the accommodations and service our guests rely on.
