Library Lounge at Historic Fairview Inn logo

Experience where Literary Excellence Meets Southern Charm...


The original library of the Fairview Mansion, built in 1908, has been transformed into a lounge, themed around celebrated Mississippi authors. The Library is adorned with a Civil War book collection; contemporary fiction and non-fiction works of famous writers like Eudora Welty, John Grisham, William Faulkner, Willie Morris and Tennessee Williams; and a taste of all things Mississippi– art, culture, music, etc. Available for Fairview Inn guests and open to the public, the intimate setting offers a popular gathering spot and unique venue to kick back and allow yourself to be engulfed by true, Southern hospitality.

Enjoy the Library Lounge during your next stay at Fairview Inn!
