The Chesterfield Inn is significant for its association with Myrtle Beach’s period of growth and prosperity as a coastal community resort from 1926 to 1954; as an excellent representative example of the motels/hotels commonly built in Myrtle Beach in the mid-twentieth century; and as an unusual example of Colonial Revival style architecture in the Myrtle Beach area. It was one of a number of these small-scale, family owned businesses built during this time to accommodate the increasing tourism trade resulting from Myrtle Beach’s rising popularity as a vacation destination. The Chesterfield Inn has been owned and operated by members of the same family for over fifty years. The Chesterfield Inn consists of two three-story buildings constructed in 1946 and 1965 respectively (the 1965 building is not included in the nomination). The 1946 building is of frame construction with a brick veneer exterior. It has a rectangular plan, end to front gable roof, and a raised basement foundation. Listed in the National Register November 7, 1996. The Chesterfield Inn has since been demolished. Removed from the National Register October 23, 2013. - SCDAH
