WOODBURY – After years of trying to sell itself, it appears that The Curtis House Inn will have new owners.
Jennifer Cascone has confirmed that she and her husband, Brian Cascone, will close on the 506 Main St. S. location either Tuesday or Wednesday.
The Cascones, who own The Evergreen Inn in Southbury, plan to close the business for about 30 days to make renovations to the building, according to a published report by the Republican-American. The article indicates that most of the renovations will be to the basement Café City Hall, which will receive bathrooms and a new bar.
The Curtis House Inn will be renamed The Evergreen Inn and Tavern, and the Cascones’s Southbury property which will now be called Evergreen Bed and Breakfast.
The Curtis House Inn is the oldest inn in Connecticut. It was established in 1754 and has been owned by the Hardisty family since 1954. In 2017, there was a plan in place for owner Chris Hardisty to sell to an LLC which wanted to turn it into a Sober House. At the end of 2018, a former Olympic figure skater planned to acquire The Curtis House and make extensive renovations to it.
The Cascones have been in the catering business since 2002 and became owners of the John Moselely house in Southbury in 2017, which they re-named The Evergreen Inn.
