1801In 1801, George Frankenberger applied for a tavern license, stating a need for lodging on this "deserted" section of the Great Road between Harrisburg and Carlisle. This simple log structure served many drovers moving livestock. For modest fees, a guest was provided with floor space to spread his bedroll, a simple hot meal, and pasture and feed for his animals. The tavern was also home to the Frankenberger family.
