The Golden Lamb is located at 27 South Broadway in Lebanon, Ohio. You can find directions and information about the inn/restaurant by visiting their website:

The Golden Lamb was founded in 1803, which makes it two hundred years old! It's Ohio's oldest operational inn. Several famous, well known people have stayed at the Golden Lamb, including Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Daniel Webster, and Lord Stanly, who became one of England's Prime Ministers.

The most famous ghost of the Golden Lamb is a little girl named Sarah. Sarah's was Isaac Stubbs' niece (he was the inn's manager). However, Sarah didn't die as a child, so some people think it's actually the ghost of a little girl named Eliza Clay (daughter of Henry Clay). Eliza died at the Golden Lamb in 1825 from a terrible fever. The ghostly activity occurs mainly in one specific room. She makes lots of noises and knocks things off walls and furniture.

The other famous ghost who is believed to haunt the Golden Lamb is Charles R. Sherman, an Ohio Supreme Court Justice who died at the inn in 1829. According to Chris Woodyard in her book The Ghost Hunter's Guide to Haunted Ohio, the ghost is described as a "gaunt, gray man" who appears in the hallways. Several people have also smelled cigar smoke in this non smoking building which they think belongs to him.
