Located in one of the oldest towns in North America, the Haddonfield Inn was built as an elegant, Victorian home between 1868 and 1875 and was one of 80 new dwellings built in Haddonfield during this time. It is nestled in a neighborhood of elegant Victorian homes, like itself.
In 1889, George E. Nyle purchased the home and remodeled it to the Queen Anne style.
By 1915 the house had become a rental property, and by 1919, it became a nursing home and hospital — in fact, several guests have mentioned that either they or older family members were born there. In 1950, it became a halfway house for mental patients and then a boarding house for transient workers.
In 1984, the building’s fortunes began to rise. In 1984, Mark and Christine Lenny, longtime residents of Haddonfield who had restored other Victorian properties purchased the property and immediately set to work to restore and renovate. The permastone was removed.
