the golden lamb

 have you heard of ohio's oldest hotel?
 the golden lamb has been in operation since 1803.  it got its name because many pioneers could not read, so a simple picture was helpful.  
 in the early days, it was a log tavern, and in 
 1815 built in brick.  a third floor was added, and in 1878 a fourth floor for the men who were building the railroad.  
 there's a comfortable waiting area in the front, with
 a newspaper and a fireplace to warm you.  
 in 1964 the black horse tavern and this lower-story gift shop were added.
 inside, history permeates.

 the food is delicious.  the house salad with smoky cheese, salmon with vegetable risotto,  raspberry chocolate dessert - all recommended.  
 my family has had special events here -

twenty-two years ago my soon-to-be husband's parents met mine for the first time.

we came one year with young children for thanksgiving and played cards between courses.  slow service, so lots of fun.

a special moms' night out.

beautiful memories.
joy to you!
