The Story Inn
The town was of Story was founded as a logging community in 1851, with the grant of a land patent from President Millard Fillmore to Dr. George P. Story. In the early 1980s two hippies from Bloomington bought and re-assembled the old town, and created the Story Inn®. Today, Story is Indianas premier country inn, and perhaps the best preserved example of a 19th Century village that survives in the American Midwest.
