The Log Inn was built in 1825 and when it opened it was the Noon Day Stage Coach Stop and Trading post.  These days it's now known as The Log Inn, and you can even dine in the same log room that Abraham Lincoln visited in 1844.

At almost 200 years old (197 years this year to be exact) The Log Inn has officially been recognized as the oldest restaurant in the state of Indiana. The Log Inn is also well known for its delicious fried chicken and family-style dinners.
