Bar House (site)

Formerly/Also Known As Carter's Tavern, Young's Tavern, Garrard's Tavern, Story's Tavern, Higinbotham's Tavern

Brownsville, PA 15417

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

Isaac Kimber, Robert Patterson and John Neelan kept taverns in Bridgeport before the National Road was made. The present Bar House is on the site of the old Kimber House. The Bar House is owned by Ephraim H. Bar, who conducted it as a tavern for many years. It was a wagon stand, and had a good trade. Robert Carter, old wagoner before mentioned, was one of the men who for a time successfully conducted the Bar House. Thornton Young, George Garrard, Matthew Story and Eli Bar kept this house in recent years at different times, and it is now conducted by W. F. Higinbotham.
