A History of the Southport Inn

The Southport Inn is a historic landmark of Southport, North Carolina and was originally¬†constructed by Samuel S. Drew for R.W. McKeithan and his wife, Amelia, in the spring of 1894. Robert W. McKeithan, born January 20, 1843 was an enlisted Confederate in the NC 1st Artillery Regiment, Co. E. Later in 1896, he was selected as a delegate to the state’s Democratic Convention. During the turn of the century, McKeithan manufactured turpentine in nearby Supply. He died June 8, 1934.The high interior ceilings are crafted with tongue and groove bead board in concentric patterns. The floors are original painted heart pine. Southport bow trim, a trademark of North Carolina coastal craftsmen, adorn the windows and doors.
