Historical Marker – Four Mile Tavern

Oakwood’s fifth historical marker developed by The Oakwood Historical Society commemorates the Four Mile Tavern, a storied building that dated to the early 1800s. The marker was installed with the assistance of the City of Oakwood in the sidewalk near the corner of Far Hills and Hilltop Avenues.

This marker is the third historical marker that The Oakwood Historical Society has unveiled thanks to a generous grant from The Rotary Club of Oakwood.

The Four Mile Tavern served as a place of respite for travelers and a gathering place for those living in the nearby rural area. The tavern was named for the four mile journey from downtown Dayton along Lebanon Pike. It was demolished circa 1912.
