The new owners of the historic Sloughhouse Inn off Jackson Highway hope to continue tradition as they prepare for their grand opening on Monday.
George and Leah Lee were attracted to the restaurant’s storied past. The land was first developed in the 1800’s, and hosted many celebrations over the years.
“It’s not just a few years back, it’s 20 years ago, 50 years ago, (people) talking about coming here with family, friends,” Leah said.
The restaurant was closed in 2006, and, since then, Facebook users have lobbied for its reopening. A page calling to the restaurant’s revival attracted 1,800 “likes.”
