Cheeca Lodge has a history that stretches over half a century. It was opened as the Olney Inn in 1946, and its first guest was none other than President Harry Truman. President Trumen spent his vacation around the pool taking walks amidst the 1,000 palm trees that graced the landscape. Another famous guest was legendary journalist Edward R. Murrow. Due to Murrow's influence, the inn became a popular spot for DC's elite to vacation.
