Inlet Historical Society to offer Rocky Point Inn talk

The Inlet Historical Society’s first program of the 2015 summer season will be a presentation by Charles Herr on the history of the popular Rocky Point Inn.

The program will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 18 at the Inlet Town Hall.

For almost a century of its existence, the Inn was a popular Fourth Lake hotel catering to customers of all walks of life, including Errol Flynn and Mary Pickford. 

Herr will provide history from the Inn’s birth and ownership by the Rocky Point Inn Company, its financial backing by Louisa Burrell and her notable husband David, and its long-term stewardship by the Delmarsh Family.

Part of the program will include photographs, menus and postcard images of the Inn’s property development from its heydays to the Inn building’s demise.

Attendees are also invited to share their memories of their stays at the Inn and its services.

The program is open to the public and offers current members an opportunity to renew their memberships.

Future Inlet Historical Society plans and events will be announced following the program.
