The two-story vernacular Greek Revival structure is one of the few remaining 19th century resort hotels in Texas. Erastus and Sarah Reed constructed the limestone block hotel. The Reeds came to Boerne from Georgia, where they had operated and managed hotels. The Inn was known as the "Reed House" and offered four rooms for travelers.
In 1869, Col. Henry C. King purchased the inn from the Reeds and renamed the hotel "King Place". In 1878, J. C. Rountree and W. L. Wadsworth purchased the inn from King and added two wings on to the building. The name of the inn was changed to the "Boerne Hotel". In 1884, the inn was purchased by James T. Clark. Dr. J. H. Barnitz of San Antonio acquired the inn in 1909 and renamed the hotel "Ye Kendall Inn", Barnitz had electrical wiring installed and added community bathrooms. In 1922, the inn was purchased by Robert L. and Maude Hickman. Mrs. W. F. Grinnan bought the Kendall Inn in 1960.
