Circa 1825

Black's Store and Tavern operated here on Lot #64 by 1820. Moses Black, the tavernkeeper, was also a noted coppersmith who signed his craft-work and had his copper-works in a log shop at the rear of the tavern. The new name for Black's Tavern became "Lafayette Hotel" in the summer of 1825, with the famous tour of Kentucky by the Marquis de Lafayette. The hero's welcome honored Lafayette for association with George Washington and his service to our nation during the American Revolution.
