Braddock Inn

Formerly/Also Known As Braddock’s Run House

3261 National Pike
Farmington, PA 15437

(724) 329-5508

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

The next old tavern stand is the 'Braddock's Run House.' Gen. Braddock was buried near this house, a day or two after his disastrous defeat by the French and Indians, at Braddock's Field, near Pittsburg. The exact spot where he was buried is still pointed out, and can be seen from the road. This circumstance gave name to the brook here, and the tavern. The house was built by Charles McKinney, the same person who built the 'Monroe Springs House.' He kept tavern here for many years. The house is a large two-story stone structure. It was subsequently and successively kept by Robert Shaw, Noble McCormick and William Shaw. This property is now owned by the heirs of James Dixon, and is not a public house.
