Proud of East Texas: Little Fannie's

GRAND SALINE, TX (KLTV) - What began as an impromptu Bed and Breakfast Inn to help out some visitors to Canton's First Monday, has grown into much more than that. After that B&B in her home in 1993, Beth Swint Fisher started moving in old houses. It's said when people see a house being moved through Grand Saline, they pretty much know it's going out to Beth's place.

Beth has bought eleven houses in all including a church that had been scheduled for demolition. She's decorated each in a theme and rents them for retreats and family reunions. She's named her country retreat "Little Fannie's" after a name she didn't know she had for years. When Beth was born, her mother was desperately ill and relatives filled out her birth certificate. Years later when she applied for a passport Beth found that the name "Little Fannie Swint" was on her birth certificate.

"Little Fannie's" is located at 4564 State Highway 110 near Grand Saline.
