10 of America's Oldest Eateries-- Part 10: The Log Inn

THE LOG INN WARRENTON, INDIANA //// In 1825, Henry Haub built the one-room log inn on the stagecoach route between Evansville and Vincennes, Indiana, and the place has been feeding hungry travelers ever since. In 1844, Abraham Lincoln dined here on a stop while campaigning for Henry Clay's run for the presidency. In the 1860s, the inn's cellar became a stop on the Underground Railroad. //// Today, on a busy Saturday, the place gets as many as 500 people for country fare served family-style at each table. //// Now, this is a place I will definitely put on my list of visits as I often drive through Evansb]ville along US-41 coming back or going to North Carolina. I did drive by it once, but had just eaten. It is 12 miles north of Evansville and 1 mile east of US-41. //// Getting Hungry Just Thinking About It. --RoadDog
