Zionsville’s Brick Street Inn closes

Brick Street InnBad news for Main Street: The Brick Street Inn in Zionsville has closed.

The original 1865 building was purchased by Bill and Rosemary Fanning in 2002. It was completely rebuilt over a period of two years, and opened for business in 2004 with eight guest rooms, a meeting room, a retail space and a small restaurant. The Fanning’s daughter, Colleen, came on board in 2007 as the inn’s executive director after a stint as the manager of the Omni Severin in Indianapolis, and the first floor was extensively remodeled just about a year ago, when the retail and dining spaces were replaced by the elegant Lobby Lounge.

Although the downturn in the economy did hurt the Inn’s business, it was for personal family reasons that it was closed, according to a message sent from the Inn. Despite the tough decision the family made, their sense of humor is still intact – the official closing announcement came in the form of a top ten list.

The announcement also leaves the door open to any opportunities that would enable the inn to reopen – something the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce would very much like to have happen. If you have an idea that would help (a restaurant, maybe?), fire off an email to
