Originally built around 1750, this building has served as a colonial inn and tavern when the village of Yellow Springs was a fashionable spa. During the American Revolution, General Washington did indeed sleep here and visited the soldiers who were convalescing in the Yellow Springs hospital he commissioned in the village in 1777. During the 19th century, the building was used as a dining facility and dormitory for the orphans of Civil War Solders and the early 20th century saw this wonderful building used as a dining hall and dorm for the young artists of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
