Fairall's Tavern (site)

National Pike
Keyser Ridge, MD 21536

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

In 1840 Truman Fairall built a house on Keyser's Ridge, and conducted it as a tavern down to the year 1853, and a short time thereafter moved to the State of Iowa, where he spent the remainder of his life. The Stockton line of coaches stopped at Fairall's. Fairall was a native of Old Virginia. Samuel Fairall, a son of Truman, the old tavern keeper, at one time a student in the Dunlap's Creek Academy, near Merrittstown, Fayette county, Pennsylvania, is a law judge in one of the courts of Iowa.
