Visited my favorite restaurant in Bedford, PA today and its authentic log cabin gift shop. Noticed the stitched floral pillow in the middle of two other pillows on the cabin porch. Of course, I had to bring the pillow home and add it to my ever-increasing collection.
I just love the historic atmosphere of this place.
The following is from the internet:
The Jean Bonnet Tavern, also known as Old Forks Inn and Bonnet's Tavern, is an historic inn and restaurant located just outside Bedford, Pennsylvania on U.S. Highway 30, at the junction with Pennsylvania Route 31.
The building was erected by Robert Callender, a trader with the Native American tribes of Pennsylvania.
Callender acquired the land in 1762. The land and the building were purchased by Jean Bonnet in 1779 and opened as an inn, which was used as a gathering place by protesting local farmers during the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion, suppressed months later by forces under President George Washington.
