The English Merchant's Inn
The English Merchant’s Inn is located in an historic mansion located on picturesque Main Street in Waxahachie which is 30 minutes south of downtown Dallas. The home was built in 1916 by an English cotton merchant for his bride who he was bringing from Manchester, England. To help compensate for the fact that he was causing her to leave the heart of the British Empire for the unknown regions of rural Texas, he built her a grand home with many exquisite details like the massive carved columns found in the grand entry hall which he had imported from England. The detail and beauty found in the common areas of the home continues throughout each of the bedrooms. Each bedroom at The English Merchants Inn is designed to combine a charming setting with an ensuite bath. Each of the rooms is unique, featuring individual collections of antique furnishings and curious finds. All rooms have 500 count linens, oversized towels and king sized beds.
