In 1917, the farm that is now Mendenhall Inn was owned by Pierre DuPont. He also purchased the surrounding properties. Soon after, the Millhous Brothers bought the farm and turned it into a feed store. The barn was turned into a restaurant in 1968, then purchased by its current owners in 1982. In 1990, a 70-room hotel was added by the Hionis family. The Grand Ballroom was built in 1994, while the original Gold Ballroom was renovated in 2006.
