Richardson's Canal House

Stop in for great food and drinks! History: The tavern was built about 1818 and served as a public house for over 100 years. The old Bushnell's Basin Hotel was a pioneer canal hostelry. Prohibition forced Mrs. John Kossow, the owner, to sell to Charles Dobler of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Mr. Dobler made the hotel into a private home. The old hotel was standing on this site when the Erie Canal was started in 1825. It was abandoned in the 1960s. Andrew D. Wolfe and his wife Vivienne Tellier began restoring the building in 1978. On Valentine's Day, 1979, it was reopened as a restaurant named Richardson's Canal House.
