“stay in a part of eastern North Carolina's landscape”
Since before the Civil War, the Murray House has been a part of eastern North Carolina’s landscape. It is perhaps the finest example of high-style Greek revival architecture in Duplin County, an area distinctive for its wealth of mid-nineteenth century Greek revival buildings. It is this grand architecture nestled in a quiet, rural setting, which inspired Lynn and Joe Davis to begin a country inn in 1994. Today the Murray House Country Inn offers 13 guest rooms and suites as well as facilities for small meetings and weddings. All of the guest rooms have private baths, most with Jacuzzi tubs, desks, wireless internet access, TVs, swimming pool making it a popular destination for the discriminating business traveler and those seeking a romantic getaway. This large plantation home was built facing the old cart path between Kenansville and Warsaw in 1853 by Dr. Needham Whitfield Herring. Dr. Herring was a medical doctor with a degree from UNC Chapel Hill and a Presbyterian minister. Dr. Herring’s handwritten journal still exists, and describes the day-by-day account of building this high-style Greek Revival plantation home that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
