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.
