|My husband and I stayed at the Golden Lamb in 2001.|
"The great English novelist Charles Dickens visited The Golden Lamb during his first trip to America in 1842. Although not quite 30 years-old when he arrived in the U.S. that January, he had already written Oliver Twist, The Pickwick Papers, Nicholas Nickleby and number of his other great works. Around 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20, 1842, after spending 5 hours traveling the 30 miles from Cincinnati on a stagecoach, he dined at the Bradley House, as we were then known. He, however, found it 'a Temperance Hotel' and could not get the brandy he ordered or any other 'spirits' . . ."
