The Old Cabin

Welcome to Newcom Tavern, also known as the Old Cabin, in Carillon Historical Park – Dayton, Ohio.

Built in 1796 as a tavern and hostel, it is now the oldest building in Dayton that is still standing.

According to Wikipedia, food and lodging for one person and a horse used to cost 65 cents. Need a place to stay for a night or two?

There is much more to see in the area of Carillon Park. Just a short walk from the Newcom Tavern stands the Wright Brothers National Museum. but that is for another post.
