On Thursday, November 18, the Senior Adults from First Baptist Greenville, or Roadrunners as we call ourselves, traveled to the newly renovated Saluda Inn that was purchased in 2020 by First Baptist church members Joel Kirby and Jay Burriss. The 1880’s Inn required extensive renovation inside and outside, including the installation of a new elevator. The Inn was converted from the original eighteen bedrooms and baths to thirteen bedrooms, baths and suites. The photos included in this article are only a few of the many taken by Wesley Smith as we enjoyed hearing the history of the Inn, seeing the renovation that is still in progress, and enjoying lunch at the Purple Onion Restaurant in downtown Saluda. We plan to return to the Saluda Inn when the renovation has been completed sometime in 2022. We appreciate the enjoyable tour and history lesson provided by Joel and Jay. Tom and Nancy Kirby also assisted in making this trip a very special trip for the Roadrunners.
