After years of anticipation, the St. Clair Inn will finally open its doors for the public to see this weekend. The first event will take place Friday evening with an exclusive charity preview of the renovated space to benefit local veterans and children. Then on Saturday, it’s the general public’s turn as the Inn plans to host public walkthroughs. The St. Clair Inn was closed in 2014 and has undergone a four-year restoration and expansion since the purchase of the property in late 2015. According to developers, “since starting the renovation, $40 million has been invested in the restoration of the Inn ensuring that the historic portion closely reflects the Inn as it appeared at the time of its original opening in 1926.” Anyone interested in touring the Inn this weekend can visit the St. Clair Inn Facebook and sign up for a time to walk-through.
