Two of Highlands oldest inns celebrated their combined 150 years Tuesday, September 13, with an old-fashioned block party on 4 ½ Street. Food, drinks and live music by Tom Hill and the Midnight Sons highlighted the evening.

Across the street from each other, the 4 ½ Street Inn and Colonial Pines are owned and operated by resident innkeepers, Rick and Helene Siegel and Chris and Donna Alley respectively. The owners conducted tours of their inns during the party.

The Siegels, former owners of an Atlanta landscaping firm, purchased the 4 ½ Street Inn in 1997. Throughout the 100-year old inn is a wealth of original woodwork, including mantels, wainscoting and 4- and 5-panel doors. The woodwork is oak, pine and chestnut, all finished with the same dark stain.
