Designed and built by local architect Bill Aven, the restaurant first opened in 1931 as “The White Mink” because the partners’ last names were . . . White and Mink! Sold in 1938, it was promptly renamed “The Pine Cone Inn.” After a succession of owners and only moderate success, in 1947 it passed into the capable hands of Jack Branch and family. The Branch family’s delicious recipes – and their natural warmth in welcoming patrons – quickly made it one of Prescott’s most popular restaurants. The building expanded in 1954 with a larger main dining room, followed two years later by a patio and larger kitchen. The Pine Cone Inn’s north side addition was built in 1967 – a large room with a fireplace, a century-old stained-glass church window and the north wall’s massive stonework. This became known as “The Gold Room” – because when Jack Branch was handed the bill by his contractor, he famously quipped, “What did you build it out of – gold?” In 2003, Tony and Liisa Ebarb made extensive and much-needed renovations to the old inn, including creekside dining. Subsequently, ownership passed to Patti Bell and Tim Gray before closing its doors in 2010. Reopening in May 2016 with the simpler name The Pine Cone and a renewed emphasis on its legacy of live music, dancing and dining.​
