Last weekend we traveled to Lebanon Ohio for the 29th annual horse drawn carriage parade which was awesome as usual. I stopped by the Golden Lamb and took a photo. People such as Charles Dickens, Mark Twain and at least 12 US Presidents have been here and done that.
The Golden Lamb Inn is the oldest hotel in Ohio, having been established in the Warren County seat of Lebanon in 1803. The present four-story structure is built around the 1815 rebuilding of the inn, maintaining its colonial architecture. It is known as the Golden Lamb because that image appeared on its signboard for the benefit of the illiterate. At various times it has been known as the Ownly Hotel, the Bradley House, the Lebanon House, and the Stubbs House.
On January 12, 1978, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Golden Lamb.
