Newcom Tavern in Dayton
Description: Original description reads: "Old log cabin - first house built in Dayton, Ohio 1796." Colonel George Newcom, one of Dayton's first settlers, constructed this two-story log house in 1796. The original house consisted of one room upstairs and one room on the ground floor. In 1798, a two-story addition was added. Since the tavern was a large two-story building, it soon became the center of village activity, as well as overnight lodging for travelers. The first court sessions were held in the tavern, and it served as a place for school and church services. View on Ohio Memory.
