Carolina Inn


Recognized as one of America’s “cultural resources worthy of preservation,” The Carolina Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Since it opened in 1924, the Inn has been important to the life of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the community. And it has been one of the most popular sites in North Carolina for banquets, weddings, business meetings and academic conferences.

The Inn was built by John Sprunt Hill, a UNC graduate who, in 1935, gave the Inn to the University to serve as “a cheerful inn for visitors, a town hall for the state, and a home for returning sons and daughters of alma mater.”
