The Richert Inn Bed and Breakfast Clinton NC
The Richert Inn Bed and Breakfast Clinton NC, circa 1916, is listed on the Historic registry as the Robert Herring House. The home was built as a private residence for Mr. Herring, his daughter Maryanna married James Shield and inherited the house. Twin sisters Anita Green and Juanita McLamb converted the house to a bed and breakfast in 1986, naming it the Shield House. In January of 2000 the Inn was purchased by LeAnn Yancey. After her untimely death her husband Scott Mizeski sold the property to Dave & Susan Richert in December of 2012. At this time the Richert’s planned a complete renovation of the property and changed the name to The Richert Inn. The Inn is home to business travelers as well as friends and family of local residents in Clinton. Social events are held on the premises.
