The Golden Lamb Restaurant & Hotel in Lebanon, Ohio opened its doors in 1803 as a “house of Public Entertainment.” It has now been over two centuries since its commencement, and this establishment is still in operation. It is now Ohio’s longest continually operating business.
Over the years, this historic inn has been visited by 12 presidents, spanning from John Quincy Adams to George W. Bush. Other prominent historical figures have visited, including Charles Dickens and Mark Twain. Accordingly, each overnight room is named after a famous guest that has stayed there. The rooms are also complete with antique furnishings, a private bath, television, and telephone.
The history doesn’t stop there. This inn is believed by many to be haunted, prominently by the ghost of Sarah Stubbs. Sarah grew up in the Golden Lamb after her father died in 1882, and her uncle, Albert Stubbs, took over the operation. Visitors can view a recreation of Sarah’s bedroom on the fourth floor, where some of her actual belongings still remain. On top of ghost hunting, guests can also enjoy the tavern and very popular restaurant for dining.
