Welcome to an authentic tavern and inn, which was a resting place on the Ohio and Erie Canal. Crafted from locally timbered black walnut, the tavern was built in 1841, and retains many of the features of the original inn. You won’t want to miss the kitchen, which features a large fireplace complete with cast iron utensils, where all the meals for the tavern were cooked. Be sure to see the hiding place, which was used when the house was a stop on the Underground Railroad.
Stroll through the parlor and the living room, where you can enjoy a collection of dresses from the eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds. Don’t miss our Woody Hayes and Cy Young memorabilia, along with our collection of military artifacts.
The monument beside the Temperance Tavern Museum is dedicated to Freeman Davis, a local man who earned the Congressional Medal of Honor during the Civil War.
