Riggle's Tavern (closed)

Formerly/Also Known As Colley's Tavern, Whitsett's Tavern, Marks's Tavern, Garrett's Tavern, Quail's Tavern, Jeffreys's Tavern

933 Old National Pikle
Centerville, PA 15333

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

The leading wagon stand in Centreville was on the hill at the west end of town, a brick house, on the south side of the road. The wagon yard was in the rear. Zephania Riggle kept this house at an early day, and was succeeded in 1845 by Peter Colley, a nephew of Abel Colley, before mentioned. Henry Whitsett came in after Colley, and next Jacob Marks, who was followed by William Garrett, and Jesse Quail succeeded Garrett. The property is now owned by Joseph B. Jeffreys who keeps the old tavern open for the accommodation of strangers and travelers. The house kept by Zeph Riggle on this site was destroyed by fire during his incumbency, and promptly rebuilt.
