The historic Log Inn Restaurant was built in 1825 as a trading post and stage coach stop. The first stage coach started running on what was once an Indian trail between Evansville and Vincennes in 1824. The fare was $3.50, four to six horses were used and changed every 12 miles.It is reported that, in 1844, Abraham Lincoln stopped here during a campaign tour speaking for presidential candidate, Henry Clay. The fourth owner of the Log Inn was Henry Haub who later founded the nearby town of Haubstadt in 1855.Throughout its long history, the physical structure of The Log Inn has undergone many transformations. Though none of the original log structure remains visible today from the outside, visitors can still see and dine in one of the original log rooms.It is reported that, under the log part of the building, there is a full cellar which was reputed to have been used as a hiding place for runaway slaves during the Civil War period.Today, The Log Inn is recognized as the oldest restaurant in the state of Indiana. It is widely known for its family style dinners and has been named as one of Indiana’s Favorite Hometown Restaurants by the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns.
