The New Perry Hotel was established in 1894 as Cox’s Inn and underwent several renovations and changes of ownership in its history. A longtime icon with travelers and diners alike, it recently (as of 2016) ceased operation.

    I have wonderful memories of this beautiful hotel….I worked as a waitress there during high school in the late 70”s.
    The Garden Room was the best! The food flowers & white tablecloths where pure southern charm! Many people would travel thru Perry just to have the pleasure of eating there. Sad to hear the news:(
    Mr. Harold would have loved to see the tradition continue…
    Please put this incredible place back on the map!!!

    I spent a great deal of my childhood at the hotel! Many of my birthday parties were held there! I remember Ms. Nanette’s beautiful flowers on the tables directly from their garden at the hotel! I remember Marsha Green and I pretending to check people in and serve customers in the restaurant after the hotel closed!!!😘 I would only hope someone local could bring this icon back to the City of Perry! The Greene family truly made this hotel a part of many memories for so many of us!!!!

    Would like to see any other photos that any one might have of the New Perry Hotel from the 1930’s decade. I believe my grandfather and grandmother worked there. Theyer names are Phil Dixon and Marie Dixon, maybe someone has old photos of them.
