Lehman's Tavern (site)

Formerly/Also Known As Fuller's Tavern

Main Street
Grantsville, MD 21536

Torn down prior to 1842. The National Hotel was built on this site after the Lehman House was razed. This location is now a gas station.

Historical marker text:

Until demolished in 1984, the National Hotel was located at the center of town. A previous National Hoteltavern, the Layman House, had been built on the site in 1832. Henry Fuller tore down the old building and erected the National Hotel in 1837.

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

John Lehman kept a tavern in Grantsville in 1836. He was a son-in-law, as was Peter Yeast, of the good old widow Wooding, before mentioned.
The Lehman House was subsequently kept by Henry Fuller, and after him by George Smouse. It was a frame building near the center of the village, on the south side of the street and road. In 1843 Henry Fuller demolished this old house, and erected a new one in its place.
