Built in 1906, The Thornton home was the location of the first gas lights in Arlington. During the mid-60s, the Thornton family sold their home to UT Arlington’s Sigma Phi Beta fraternity. After sitting vacant for a few years, Sunny Graham acquired the home in 2006 and worked to restore it to its near-original architecture. In 2008, a short-suspense thriller, The Brotherhood, was shot at the home. Sunny conducted her real estate business out of the home but decided to convert it into an inn with Debbie South.
The beautiful Thornton Inn has a warm, home-like feel with five unique bedrooms and personal bathrooms. Each room has robes, Wi-Fi access, alarm clock radio, hair dyer, and cable for guests. Four of the bedrooms are located upstairs along with a cozy seating area, perfect for high-tea. Downstairs boasts a comfortable living and dining area for complementary breakfast. In addition, a handicap accessible room and bathroom are available on the main floor.
The Thornton Inn is ran by the accommodating innkeepers, Jimmy and Debbie South. The husband and wife duo live on the premise and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
