In 2019, we celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Beaumont Inn and our family’s five generations of innkeeping.
Our 2019 Special Events Celebrating 100 Years
In 2019 we had two wonderful Classics Weekends in May and July that celebrated our 100 years with a Wine and Cheese with the Dedman Family, Tea and Tour of Jayne Thompson’s Antiques, Bingo with Helen Dedman, and Nostalgia dinners in the Main Dining Room celebrating our Kentucky cuisine. On September 21, we celebrated our 100 years with a Gala Event that hosted over 250 guests who were welcomed by the Dedman family as they arrived and who enjoyed a night of live music, delicious Inn food, drinks, and toasts. It was a night of celebration of the Dedman family, employees of the Inn, long time guests, and others who have been integral to the success of the Inn.
In 2019, on social media, we shared classic recipes of the Inn each Wednesday and Inn memories every Thursday. In 2019, we shared that the Inn was recognized as part of the Congressional Record for its 100 years by United States Senator Mitch McConnell (Issue 165, Volume 19, Senate pgs. 764-765). Senator Jimmy Higdon of the Commonwealth of Kentucky also honored and recognized the Inn’s 100 years in September 2019 in Frankfort. 2019 was a year full of historic celebrations!
Our Main Inn was built in 1845, so we have a fascinating story before 1919. See our many displays of photos and historic one-of-a-kind treasures. Read a brief history of Beaumont Inn!
