Zettle's Tavern (site)

Formerly/Also Known As Zittle's Tavern

Old National Pike
Boonsboro, MD 21713

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

One mile west of South Mountain, Petter Zettle, a German, kept a tavern. It was a wagon stand, and a popular one. The house was of brick, and stood on the south side of the road. The old landlord was accustomed to join in the merry-making of the old wagoners, and as the jokes went around in the old bar room, the German spice was plainly discernible as well as agreeable, in unison with the familiar notes of the native pike boys.
