The Inn is located in Sandwich, Massachusetts, one of the oldest towns in the United States, which was founded in 1639. The inn itself has offered lodging for over 300 years. Erected in the mid-1700s as the Fessenden Tavern, it was a meeting place for patriots during the American Revolution. Daniel Webster, the prominent Boston lawyer and U.S. Senator, for whom the inn is named, had a room reserved at the inn from 1815-1851, and visited frequently. The antique furnishings and art of The Dan’l Webster Inn & Spa reflect the history of its founding and the old town in which it is set.
