This was our destination, The Spread Eagle Tavern in Hanoverton, Oh. By the way, sorry for driving like a maniac to make our reservation, I kind of forgot how hilly it is in these parts.
This place just oozes history, sorry oozes is probably not a great word to use at a restaurant. The place is huge and creaky with a brick basement like you wouldn't believe. I should mention that my dad is a brick mason and I just knew he would love this place. They also love colonial architecture and anything historic.
Our family has been to just about every historic spot worth mentioning in about a four state radius. Williamsburg, Jamestown, Mt. Vernon, Shakertown, Quakertown, ok, I made up that last one, but you get the picture. And speaking of pictures, dad was quite a photographer in his day. When the pictures got developed, there was at least 20 that were brick walls, fireplaces, streets, artistic inspiration, I get it now, it all makes so much more sense now that I'm grown up. Somehow I know you are trying to find a client this week who wants a vaulted brick ceiling, am I right? Yes, you laugh, but you are thinking about it every waking minute, I know you.
We had a lovely lunch. Our friend Aaron joined us too. Thanks Myah for your photography assistance, next time try to squeeze in your dad and little sister:)
