Golden Lamb Hotel lobby photograph
Description: This photo shows a small section of the lobby of the Golden Lamb Hotel in Lebanon, Ohio. In the foreground, various pieces of antique furniture and decor are shown. In the background of the image, a few unknown people can be seen through two doors that lead further into the lobby. The Golden Lamb, formerly the old Lebanon House, is the oldest hotel in the state of Ohio. Established by Jonas Seaman in 1803, it was a quick success and became known for its quality food and lodging. Two years later the Warren County courthouse was built across the street, increasing the business of the Golden Lamb. The tavern served as a meeting place for troops during the War of 1812 and as a stagecoach stop during the nineteenth century. The present day, four-story building was built in 1815 during the rebuilding of the inn. The inn has had many famous guests such as Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and twelve U.S. Presidents. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. View on Ohio Memory.
