Old McCollough Stand (site)

Formerly/Also Known As McCollough's Tavern

National Pike
Farmington, PA 15437

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

The next house is a two-story stone building with portico in front, known in recent years as the Old McCollough Stand. It was built and first kept as a tavern by a man named Bryant. James Sampey, Isaac Nixon, Morris Mauler and Nicholas McCartney, each kept this house for shorter or longer terms before McCollough went into it. Col. John W. McCollough, who became the owner of the property, kept tavern here for many years, and died the proprietor. He was a man of stalwart size, a talking man and a politician. He was likewise a contractor, and did much work on the road. He left a widow and several children. [J]Jim and Nick, two of his sons, are well known pike boys. His widow married 'Squire Burke, who now occupies the house, and there is no place on the road where a better meal can be obtained.
