Little, Moses Tavern

Little, Moses Tavern
Category: Residential Landmark/Farmstead
Location: National Pike (US 40), 3/4 miles east of I-79 interchange

This two-and-a-half story brick house was built in two stages, with the original three bay built in 1840 and a four-bay addition c. 1845. The first section is in the Greek Revival style with pedimentad gable and a front entry with transom and sidelights. A tripartite window on the second floor above this door further reflects this style. The house had faced the National Road at a distance of about 30' until the realignment of US 40 in the 20th century. Moses Little kept a wagon stand at this property during the National Road's heyday to accommodate wagoners and stagecoaches. The presence of a second front entry in the addition indicates its further use as a tavern. [p. 115 POP]
