Known as the oldest restaurant in the Hoosier State, The Log Inn was opened in 1825 by Henry Haub and has seen its fair share of remarkable guests over the course of its history.

Arguably the most famous visitor is the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln’s visit to The Log Inn happened in November of 1844 on his way back from a political campaign tour in nearby Evansville.

The Log Inn is also steeped in American history as a famous stop along the Underground Railroad. This restaurant also served as a main stagecoach stop throughout much of the 1840s.

Today, the restaurant serves as a beloved time capsule where diners can take a step back in time while enjoying some pretty delicious down-home food.
