Sullivan Place Bed and Breakfast stands on property that originally was part of the homestead and ginning village of Jesse William and Martha Flake Sullivan. In fact, the area with its operating cotton gin was called "Jesse Sullivan's Place." The Sullivans, early 1900s entrepreneurs and patriarchal figures of the community, owned half a dozen other cotton gins, as well as much of the land and agri-business of Anson County.
Today, what remains of their estate is being shaped by the Sullivans' granddaughter, Nancy Cornwell, who, with her family, is continuing family traditions while placing her own distinct stamp on the same plot of land.
When visiting the bed and breakfast, guests can see the influence of Nancy’s Southern roots throughout the bed and breakfast and its surrounding areas. Kids can enjoy exploring the property in hopes of unearthing a buried artifact or lost family treasure, while the adults can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the grounds or a relaxing afternoon on the spacious back deck.
