Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House has served up tradition, and Southern hospitality, not to mention good home cooking, since 1908.  Located in the heart of Lynchburg, Tenn., just off the town square, it's recognized as one of the South's signature family-style dining restaurants.  It possesses a history almost as rich as Miss Mary's Fudge Pie and was built before Lynchburg became home to Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey.

Miss Mary Bobo's began back in 1908 when a young Miss Mary assumed ownership of the historic Salmon Hotel.  The original structure was raised in the 1820's as a traveler's hotel and is build over a natural spring.  Miss Mary ran the boarding house until her death in 1983, just one month shy of her 102nd birthday. 

The Boarding House no longer boards guests, but continues serving midday dinner.  Midday "dinners" are served by reservation only and each guest is guaranteed a unique dining experience.
