About The Historic Town of Smithville
The original Smithville Inn was built in 1787 by James Baremore. It was just one room on a well-traveled stagecoach route and may not have actually been planned for an inn. But houses were far between those days, and word of the Baremore's hospitality spread until in keeping became their living.
His family continued to operate the Inn Through the years and by 1874, it had grown to six times its original size, and its frame seemed permenantly established. Yet sometime after the turn of the century, it was abandoned.
In 1949, the Inn was rediscovered. its long and colorful past was carefully studied, and in 1952 a local couple purchased the Inn and seven acres of property, restoring the structure and opening it in 1952 as a 42-seat restaurant.
So successful was the Inn's reopening that the initial plans were enlarged and building from southern New Jersey's past were brought to the Town of Historic Smithville - each restored and refurbished with loving attention to detail, and reopened to the public.
The Historic Smithville Inn has been designated as a Historic Site by the U.S. Government.
Today the tradition continues. The Smithville Inn offers award winning Midday and Evening Bills of Fare as well as its famous Sunday Brunch. The Smithville Inn also offers Holiday, Special Event, and Wedding and Banquet Menus.
