The Historic Restaurant That’s Been Around Since Ohio First Became A State
Ohio has seen its fair share of history since its official statehood was established on March 1, 1803.
It’s interesting to learn about who passed through our state over the centuries, what historical figures and inventions have roots here, and what buildings have stood the test of time. The Golden Lamb, a restaurant and hotel in the small city of Lebanon, is the oldest continually operated business in Ohio. If you’re an Ohio native, it belongs at the very top of your bucket list. Rich with history, charm and an old-world ambiance, a meal or an overnight stay here will make you feel as if you’ve temporarily traveled back in time.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The Golden Lamb is located at 27 S Broadway St., Lebanon, OH 45036. Have you been here before? What was your experience like?
