HISTORY AS YOU LIKE IT

—————-
 This silver soup spoon was once used by diners at the restaurant stamped on the handle. Built in 1784 by Major Gilbert Horton, the home which sat on Bay View Road, was much better known as its later, much-expanded version, the General Wayne Inn.
—–
During the early 1950’s, the establishment was Mrs. Sutherland’s Cedar Beach Inn. By 1958, the business was renamed after Revolutionary War General Anthony Wayne, nicknamed ‘Mad Anthony’ of Waynesboro Pennsylvania.

Sadly, after years of neglect, the building was razed in 2014.
