In the middle of Yellow Springs, Ohio is the touted Cornerstone of the Kings Yard, the Ye Olde Trail Tavern. The restaurant sits in the first home of Yellow Springs, formally known as the Forest Village. Built in 1847, Ye Olde Trail Tavern Restaurant is Ohio’s second oldest restaurant. The motto of the tavern is “Many pass through, few pass by.” The people who are drawn to visit the tavern stay and continue to come back after their first visit. A reason for the enchanting appeal of the tavern is that the recipes for the soups are carefully guarded secrets.
