Fuquay Mineral Spring
The Colonial Revival Bed and Breakfast is located in the Fuquay Springs National Register Historic District directly across the street from the Historic Fuquay Mineral Spring Park.
The Fuquay Mineral Spring was discovered in the Spring of 1858 by Davey Crocket Fuquay and Stephen Fuquay while plowing on their father's farm. The Mineral Spring was believed to have healing powers and visitors came from far and wide to partake of the mineral waters. Hotels and Resort Business developed around the Spring and in the first part of the nineteenth century it was a very popular place to vacation and relax. The nearby homes and the hotels were owned by many of the community's doctors and businessmen who believed the water was good for whatever cure one would need. Some families still come to drink the water from the Spring today keeping the old tradition alive.
Innkeepers and Owners John and Patty Byrne welcome you to the Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn after two years of detailed restoration.
