A New Chapter in the History of The Lamb's Inn
A Journey into Cambridge
Never seen it up close so I am not at all compettent to pass judgment on the issue in the news.
I was curious about the history of the place:
Lamb’s Inn, a building with many stories hidden in its walls. Built in 1837, Lamb’s Inn started out as one of the first Inns for the stage coach routes in Upper Canada, a place for weary travelers to stay the night and drink a beverage. John Lamb was the original owner of the Inn, but through the years that ownership got passed on to many others The building went through many changes from operating as an Inn, to a fine dining establishment, and eventually a popular but rowdy neighborhood watering hole infamously known as Nicholson’s Tavern. Today bits of this history can still be found in its walls as it operates as rare’s main administrative office.
