About our Inn
When & Where
We are located on a unique and historic intersection in the village of Kimberton, Pennsylvania. Each of the four buildings on the intersection was built in the late 1700´s.
On the corner opposite ours, in 1776, Emmor Kimber built and operated a Quaker girls boarding school which closed in the late 1840´s when parents discovered that Kimber was running slaves through the village on the underground railroad to freedom. The other corners were home to a grain mill (now the U.S. Post Office) and a general store.
Our restaurant was built as an inn in 1796, and it has functioned as an inn, a tavern, or a restaurant since that time. We have been known throughout the years as the Kimberton Hotel (1800´s), and The Kimberton Inn and Country House (1950´s - 1980´s). We now call ourselves, simply, The Kimberton Inn.
If you have the opportunity, look at the John Peirce painting in our lobby. It depicts life in our village in 1834 and portions of the painting are shown on this page. You will notice that our lovely intersection has changed little in 160 years. A photo of the former mural of the Kimber School that once was displayed in the Upper French Room is available here. We are lucky to be here and we hope you feel that way too.
You can see more photos and learn the history of the village of Kimberton in our About Kimberton section.
