Storied Hospitality

The history of fine hospitality where Queen and Meeting Streets meet begins in 1801, with Mary Grimke’s impressing guests with “beef steaks and oysters every evening.” When local grain merchant Otis Mills renovated this private home to create the Mills House Hotel, opened in 1853, it dazzled with its grand scale, detailed construction, and lavish dining room known for its elaborate menus—some of the finest in the city.
