The Old Tavern, Ohio’s Oldest Surviving Tavern Located in Unionville.

On this week’s episode, we’re visiting the first and oldest surviving tavern in Ohio, The Old Tavern in Unionville established in 1798 – 5 years before Ohio became a State. It’s seen many a war – from the American Civil War, War of 1812, WWI and II, to today’s conflicts. It once served as a stagecoach and mailstop on the Warren-Cleveland mail route.


The Tavern also served as a safe house on the Underground Railroad and likely inspired the character George Harris for Harriet Beecher Stowe’s book Uncle Tom’s Cabin after she once stayed here. The tavern even participated in a flower Pageant for the opening ceremonies and parade for the inaugural Cleveland National Air Races in 1929. The Old Taven is filled with history and great stories so allow us to share a few of these with you today on this episode of History and Relics.
