Red Lion Inn celebrates 50th anniversary since reopening

(Photo contributed) The Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge celebrated its 50th anniversary on Tuesday.

STOCKBRIDGE — A lot can change over the course of 50 years.

In the U.S. in 1969, the average cost for a gallon of milk was $1.10, television series Sesame Street first debuted and Apollo 11 launched the first men on the moon. During the same time in Stockbridge, the reopening of one venue has helped shape the community’s identity as a cultural landmark destination.

And to commemorate this moment in time, the historic Red Lion Inn, is celebrating its 50th anniversary since its purchase, rehabilitation and reopening with a series of special events as well as packages catered to its guests.

The celebration is a vision of Stockbridge as a vibrant, vital and creative community for residents and visitors that Jack and Jane Fitzpatrick had when they bought the hotel and reopened it 50 years ago this May, said Sarah Eustis, third-generation owner and operator as CEO of Main Street Hospitality.
