Murphy NC Bed and Breakfast lodging and accommodations at Huntington Hall Bed and Breakfast


A Brief History...
In the early 1800’s, a small settlement located on the confluence of the Valley and Hiawassee Rivers was called Huntington, where from the inn’s name was chosen. It wasn’t until years later that the town adopted the name Murphy, in honor of Archibald Murphey, the founder of the North Carolina Public School System. 
 
Approximately one hundred years ago, J.H. Dillard and his wife Dixie built their home in the town of Murphy, which is nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Mr. Dillard, an prominent attorney for Southern Railway, was mayor of the prospering town and was twice elected to the North Carolina House of Representatives from Cherokee County. The Dillards were pillars of the Murphy Presbyterian Church. 

John Dillard, aka "Colonel Jack" was instrumental in the incorporation of the John C. Campbell Folk School. He was one of several who pursued the idea of a Danish folk school moving to Brasstown with Dame Olive Campbell, wife of the late John C. Campbell.
