Tabitha Inn (Our Lady’s Haven)

Tabitha Inn (Our Ladys Haven) (1905)

Built to accommodate an increase in visitors to Fairhaven, this well- appointed Elizabethan style hotel was named after Rogers’ maternal great-grandmother, Tabitha (Crowell) Huttlestone. At the time it was built, the Tabitha Inn was considered one of the finest small accommodations outside of Boston or New York. Mark Twain and other notable friends of the Rogers family stayed here. During WWII, the building housed Coast Guard cadets and was later purchased by the Fall River Diocese of the Catholic Church for use as a nursing home, Our Lady’s Haven. The large brick addition to the rear was added in the early 1950s.
