The Old Tavern,1798, is one of the oldest buildings still standing in Ohio. It was also called the Unionville Tavern. A stagecoach stop that once welcomed the likes of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and many others who rested or enjoyed a meal within its walls. It is in the process of being saved after several years of neglect.
Many remember dining here. The specialty of the Tavern was the corn fritters, served in a small dish with maple syrup poured over and a sprinkle of confectioners sugar.
