The 1788 Inn is an excellent example of period Federal architecture in Bedford County in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Built adjacent to the “Great Road” from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, its history is recorded as a tavern, stage coach stop, inn, and wagon stand. Research indicates that the original survey of the property for Benjamin Martin was in 1788 and noted the property boundaries of 206 acres on both sides of the “Great Road” to include the Maple Spring. The original tract was called “Springfield”. In the 1920’s it was known as the Maple Lawn Inn, a restaurant known for it’s famous ham and chicken dinners. The Maple Lawn Inn has been called the truly first hotel of Breezewood. And we’ve learned from previous owners that the Inn was used as hotel lodging for the men that built the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
