History

   Bread and Roses Inn takes its name from the poem by James Oppenheim written in 1912 in response to the women textile workers strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts, seeking a reduction from a 56 to a 54 hour work week, without loss in pay. During one of the parades by the marching women, some carried a banner saying , "We want bread and roses, too".

   Bread and Roses Inn is dedicated to the concept that people require not only the basic essentials in life, but beauty and inspiration as well.
