Examples of basic outdoor activities nearby include going to the river or visiting apple orchards. Additionally, Soldiers Grove is known for the rivers surrounding the area, where people spend warm summer days kayaking, paddle boarding, and river rafting down the river.

For a more on-site activity, visitors can learn more about the history of the warehouse. The history mainly involves what purposes the building used to serve and how Noel Miler, the owner, converted it into an inn. Showing what the property looked like when it was a warehouse to what it became after his work. As far as the culture of the Tobacco Warehouse Inn is concerned, Noel and his staff strive to be non-invasive and let the guests make themselves feel at home. One guest who stayed mentioned that the inn is "Very comfortable, cozy, cutely decorated, clean rooms in a very cool remodeled old tobacco warehouse." The primary demographic of visitors to the establishment varies. Younger people visit the area to participate in more adventurous activities, while elderly couples seek romantic getaways.


The Tobacco Warehouse Inn was built in the summer of 1923, where it stored tobacco shipped from Ohio. The income the tobacco brought in helped an economy that was struggling back to becoming profitable again. In 2019 the warehouse became functional again after being an abandoned warehouse that stored tobacco for years.

Noel Miller, who now owns the building, had been remodeling the warehouse since his purchase of it in 2012. He converted the property into a completely different place than it once was. Noel gave the building electricity and modern-day utilities for the first time in 50 years. Starting from only the support of the building, he spent hours putting up more walls, flooring and making it a place where people could live. Noel himself stays at the inn as a permanent resident. Noel wanted to purchase this property because he already owned other inns with his friends and wanted to renovate the inn with the potential of it becoming a hotel. He attempted to see what potential it had instead of focusing on its state of being before his purchase.
