Our Brand Story...
The Mellon Country Inn is situated in an area known by locals as ‘Mellon Country.’
It was named after Thomas Mellon and his family, who emigrated to America in 1818. Leaving Derry/Londonderry, the Mellons settled in Pennsylvania, where Thomas went on to set up T. Mellon & Sons Bank in 1870.
By the end of the 19th Century, the bank became the largest in the United States outside of New York City.
Today, guests can enjoy a visit to the original Mellon homestead, which forms the nucleus of ‘The Ulster American Folk Park, just a two-minute drive from the hotel.
Enjoy a family visit to The Ulster American Folk Park during your stay with us at The Mellon Country Inn, and see the original Mellon family home!
