Inextricably interwoven with the history of Tryon, Polk County, North Carolina and indeed the country from before the time of the American Revolution, through the Civil War and on, the GreenLife Inn at Mimosa sits with placid grace and charm.
The Mimosa Inn property began more than 200 years ago when 90,000 acres of land was deeded to John Mills. The Mills homestead was established on the current Mimosa Inn site. Dr. Columbus Mills inherited the estate and built a plantation for wayfarers. In 1885, the Mills home was one of only four farmhouses that could be referred to as “plantations” in Polk County.
