The Spread Eagle Tavern is a special place. My sister and Bro-in-law treated my wife and me to a wonderful dinner at the seasonally decorated and fire-lit restaurant and inn. The building is one of the finest examples of Federal Period Architecture in Ohio.
In 1837, the tavern was built on the Sandy and Beaver Canal which connected to the Ohio and Erie Canal. The Sandy and Beaver Canal was completed in 1848. At that time the Spread Eagle was a flourishing place of commerce. The canal was abandoned in 1852 and with its loss commerce of the town also declined.
If ever road-weary along the Sandy and Beaver Canal, I highly recommend the Spread Eagle for lunch or dinner.
