The Old Deery Inn in Blountville will be getting some upgrades after the County Commission voted Monday to fund some repairs.

The Commission voted to allocate $30,000 to be put towards doing some maintenance work. That work is expected to include some plumbing upgrades among other things.

The goal is to make the Old Deery Inn a destination for tourists.

"I don't ever, personally don't see it becoming an operational B&B in the future, but getting on the right track to make a very presentable tourist attraction is definitely in the county's best interest," Sullivan County Commissioner John Gardner said.

Included in the resolution is to set aside $10,000 every year for the maintenance of the historic buildings of downtown Blountville.
