Golden Pheasant Inn – Erwinna, PA
For more than 20 years, parents Michel and Barbara Faure ran Golden Pheasant Inn before passing on responsibility to their daughters Briar Faure Mewbourne, Brittany Faure Booz, and Blake Faure. The three sisters have worked tirelessly to preserve the historical charm of the inn while enhancing it with contemporary amenities.
The Inn, built in 1857, is home to the longest continuously operating restaurant/hotel along the Delaware Canal, and is recognized on the National Registry of Historic Places. The tavern and former mule barn area of the Golden Pheasant Inn served as early commercial buildings constructed along the Delaware River and the Delaware Canal to serve mercantile traffic. An important gathering place, the tavern was the social hub for farmers, travelers, and later, canal men and vacationers.
Today, the property retains its architectural integrity and continues to be used as a lodging facility—as it has for its entire history.
