The historic Anniston Inn was designed by well-known architect George T. Pearson and built in 1885 by Anniston founding fathers Samuel Noble and Alfred Tyler. The five-story Queen Ann-styled structure was a masterpiece renowned for its grand style, architecture, and craftsmanship. The inn was the first of its kind equipped with electric lighting, generated from an onsite dynamo. Sightseers and travelers came from miles around to admire this magnificent structure with the then-new innovation of electric lighting. It is one of the last remaining historic sites in Anniston to feature hands-on work from the city’s founding fathers.

The hotel section of the Anniston Inn was destroyed by fire on January 2, 1923; all that survived was the four-story kitchen, along with the servants’ living and dining quarters. After years of neglect, the inn was scheduled for demolition. However, local residents James and Patsy Cotton had a vision of what the Inn could be, rescued it from demolition, and painstakingly restored it to its original grandeur.
