|In its over 200 year history the Golden Lamb has played host to numerous
authors, statesmen and twelve United States Presidents. But not all the history
of this venerable institution revolves around its famous guests and its one of a
kind collection of American furniture and priceless Shaker antiques.
The Golden Lamb .... Tales From the Innside takes readers behind the scenes
of this landmark restaurant and hotel and offers up a unique perspective on
the inn and its history. From the hotel's disastrous fire to the funeral home
furniture in the lobby, to the quilt that wouldn't die, The Golden Lamb Tales
From The Innside is a loving, though sometimes irreverent, exploration of this
centuries old establishment which has become a tradition with over ten
generations of Americans.
Fred Compton began his working career at the age of fifteen as a busboy at
The Golden Lamb in Lebanon, Ohio. He worked there throughout high school
and college. After graduating Miami University with a journalism degree,
Fred came back to The Golden Lamb for what he thought was a "summer
job." He wound up staying twenty-eight years.
