Visit to The Wayside Inn


Cindy and I got to take a special tour of The Wayside Inn today in Middletown, Virginia. Did you know The Wayside Inn is the oldest inn in the US that has run continually since it first opened in the 1700’s? Also learned that George Washington slept here when he was 16 years old.  Pretty fascinating! Please stop by and visit if you are ever in Middletown, Virginia.
