10 of America's Oldest Eateries-- Part 9:: Hays House

HAYS HOUSE COUNCIL GROVE, KANSAS //// Located along the old Santa Fe Trail, the Hays House Restaurant has been feeding travelers since 1857. Seth Hays, the town's founder and great-grandson of Daniel Boone, built the log building, which is still part of the restaurant. //// Fried chicken, ham and from-scratch food are still trademarks. It was frequented by 7th Cavalry Lt. Col. George Custer during the 1860s. //// A 2011 fire threatened to close it down, but 25 town residents chipped in and bought the landmark. //// So It Continues. --RoadDog
