History of the Tavern

First built by Daniel Henry in 1875, the building was named the National Hotel.

Original tavern licenses are and displayed in the dining room, dating from 1903 through 1912, featuring the names of the various owners. 

In the 1950s, Mr. Klinedinst owned and operated the Tavern, which suffered the wrath of Hurricane Angus in 1972 . In 1985, the tavern was destroyed by fire under the ownership of the Lippy family.

The tavern we know today has not been spared from multiple storm/flood events.

Despite these, we continue to stand and build community on this landmark in Seven Valleys, keeping the history alive for future generations.
