The Inn is close to the location of the massacre at Hancock's Bridge ended with 20 members of the Salem militia loosing their lives. This massacre happened when the house of Judge William Hancock, a Loyalists, was stormed. The house had been commandeered by the Patriots who were asleep when the attack occurred.
