General Lafayette Inn in Lafayette Hill Dating Back to 1730s Is Up For Sale
The General Lafayette Inn in Lafayette Hill has hit the market, writes Kevin Tierney for More Than The Curve.
The property – which has been in almost continuous use for over 287 years – most recently served as a restaurant named The General from 2017 to early 2020. Before that, it was home to the Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery from 2013 to 2016.
Most notably in the property’s recent history, it was a brewery and restaurant from 1996 to 2010. It also served as a bed and breakfast for some of that period.
The General Lafayette Inn dates back to the 1730s when it was known as the “Three Tuns.” It was later named after General Lafayette, who led Continental forces during the Battle of Barren Hill that was fought during the Revolutionary War in the immediate area. According to some historical accounts, Lafayette organized his famous retreat from Saint Peter’s Church next to the inn.
According to the listing, the “building has an R restaurant license and seats 170 which includes outside seating for around 20 in a private enclosed area.”
