Talbott Tavern - Bardstown

Talbott tavern looks like it’s straight out of old England, but it’s very American. It was a Kentucky bourbon bar before bourbon bars were a thing—heck, even before bourbon was officially bourbon. Abraham Lincoln stayed here when he was five, just before his parents lost their land and moved to Indiana. On a lighter historical note, Jesse James stopped by, too—and he left his mark. Bullet holes from James are on the wall to this day, adding some good ol’ American spirit to the renowned stone work.
