Lighthouse Inn (New London, Connecticut) Wikipedia
The Lighthouse Inn, originally known as Meadow Court, is a Colonial Revival hotel building at 6 Guthrie Place in New London, Connecticut. The Mission style main house was designed by William Ralph Emerson and built in 1902 as a country home for steel industry magnate Charles S. Guthrie. Guthrie's widow began selling off the estate in 1925, and the main house was converted into an inn in 1927. The original grounds were landscaped by the noted Olmsted Brothers landscape design firm. The inn was popular with Hollywood stars in the 1940s.
The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. It was listed for sale (with historic preservation restrictions) by the city in February 2014.
