    Rice Hotel/Hughlett's Tavern in Northumberland County, VA
    Rice Hotel/Hughlett's Tavern in Northumberland County, VA
    RICE'S HOTEL, or HUGHLETT'S TAVERN, was also built on a portion of John Hughlett's 1663 grant. The Hughlett family plantation was nearby and by 1812 John Hughlett the Elder, great-grandson of the original grant holder, applied for a license to operate the tavern. His 1795 will stipulated that rents from the ordinary be applied to the schooling and raising of his grandson. In 1824 he sold the property to Griffin H. Foushee who later sold it to William H. Harding who rented the tavern to Thomas G. Bains. In 1844 Richard A. Claybrook purchased the property and sold it the following year to S. M. Conway. Sometime between 1845 and 1852 William Sydnor acquired the property and in 1852 it was purchased from Sydnor's estate by William Middleton. In 1866 Benjamin Middleton sold it to John and Felicia Rice, who lived there with their three children.

    RICES HOTEL prospered under their ownership and when John died in 1892 his widow continued operation until leasing it about 1906 to her cousin, George Daniel Shirley, who changed the name to"SHIRLEY'S HOTEL" and lived there with his family until about 1909. J. G. Rice, Sr. and Leila Palmer Rice acquired the property from heirs of Felicia Rice and lived at the hotel with six children, continuing to operate the hotel until the mid-1930s when many clients became permanent boarders. The building remained in the hands of the Rice family until 1990 when it was deeded, along with 1.2 acres of land, to the Northumberland County Historical Society. Today, the building is the site for the HEATHSVILLE TAVERN, a popular restaurant.
