In Reply to: ENSLOW's Inn and Tavern in Wheelersburg, OH by Dolores C. Rutherford of 1294

I just found an additional description of the ENSLOW Tavern in Wheelersburg, OH, but still need a picture of it if there is one in existence. Here is the description...taken from "My Sketch of Wheelersburg" by H. M. Hall, a copy of which I received from the Portsmouth Public Libary, Wheelersburg Branch.

p. 20:

"There were three Enslow properties held in certain memory. Rezin Enslow conducted his tavern in a brick and frame at Broadway and South Streets. In the rear there was a long stable, one story, wide enough for stalls on both sides, which rose to the height of a barn at the alley. Rooms of the frame part of the house were large, the lower being a ball room, used frequently and on February 22 attracting attendance even from Portsmouth. A daughter built the large frame south of it. It was used for business below, the writer remembering a man named Ramey having the post office in the north room. Opposite the tavern (which bore in large letters the name Mansion House), A. J. Enslow built. He married Nancy Bliss, whose father, Theodore Bliss, Sr., was a builder of houses, including the story and a half where he and a son Theodore, Jr. lived. It faces the school."

Does anyone have any pictures of these ENSLOW houses and the tavern? Were these all torn down? If so, what is standing on those premises now?

Thanks for any help that you can give me on this.
