Inn at Herr Ridge
Inn at Herr
Ridge is where history meets hospitality.
The same year that Napoleon fought the Battle of Waterloo, Thomas Sweeney built this structure in
Cumberland Township, Pennsylvania, operating it as a tavern and "Publick Houe...for travelers and
strangers," who required sojourn along the turnpike from Gettysburg to Chambersburg.
Originally built as a Publick House, this 1815 Federal-style building became the site of the first Confederate stand and hospital during the Civil War. Listed in the National Register, the inn's 19th-century heritage and glory has now been faithfully restored, and a new wing added.
