Holiday Inn Express Groundbreaking

BENSON – Benson Mayor Jerry Medlin, Town Manager Kim Pickett, Benson Chamber President Loretta Byrd, and Johnston County Visitors Bureau President/CEO Donna Bailey-Taylor, along with Adam Leath and associates of the Leath Company broke ground on Benson’s new Holiday Inn Express.

The new Holiday Inn Express will be located adjacent to the current Hampton Inn at 100 Water Place Landing. Following the success of the Hampton Inn — one of the most utilized hotels in the area by travelers through Johnston County — the Leath Company decided that the Benson area could sustain a second hotel and they officially broke ground on the project on Monday, March 20th.
