The Harborage Inn was built in 1869 and became an operating Inn in 1925.  In the Spring of 1971, the Harborage came up for sale and Troy's grandparents Effie & Robert Wallace were delighted to purchase this historic landmark.  They owned the inn for many years and built a strong reputation for true quality, hospitality & family tradition.

In 1999, Troy & Emery Chapman purchased the Harborage Inn from Troy's grandparents and now take great pride in maintaining these traditions & high standards.
