The Carolina Inn Supports the UNC-Chapel Hill Library
Built in 1924 by John Sprunt Hill – distinguished alumnus, successful businessman and University trustee- the inn’s original concept was “to provide for the special wants and comforts of the University alumni… and University visitors.” In 1935, Hill donated the Inn to the University of North Carolina with the stipulation that after meeting expenses, profits from the Inn were to be used for “the maintenance and support of the University Library, and especially for the support of the collection of books and papers known as the North Carolina Collection.” Mr. Hill’s wishes are still carried out today as the Inn returns its profits to the University to support the University Library. A bronze plaque commemorating Mr. Hill’s donation is located at the front desk of the Inn and quite simply states “This generous gift affords a cheerful Inn for visitors, a town hall for the state, and a home for returning sons and daughters of alma mater."
