This Old House - Week One / by Dave Hileman

Next stop is in central Pennsylvania at the home of Samuel and Jean Lemon along the Allegheny Portage Railroad. This was also a tavern for passengers traveling east or west on the canal barges that were hoisted up and lowered down the mountain. This was built by S. Lemon in 1832 and operated as a tavern for nearly 20 years. The house remained in the family until 1907.
