Neiswanger's Tavern (site)

Formerly/Also Known As Swanker's Tavern

National Road
Saint Clairsville, OH 43950

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

One mile west of St. [Clairsville], an old German, or Swede, bearing the non-musical name of Swanker, or something like it, kept a tavern, and, according to tradition, a good one. His house was a fine brick building, on the north side of the road.

From Centennial History of Belmont County, Ohio, A. T. McKelvey, ed. (1903):

After leaving the county seat, is mentioned the fine brick tavern kept in good style by a man named Neiswanger, and this old tavern, erected 91 years ago [1812], is occupied by his grandchildren.
