The Pub

Originally built as a tack house, likely in the 1950s, this structure once stored hay and other necessities for horses. (There are posts all over the property for tying up ponies.) By the time Keegan purchased the property, it had been converted into a party barn, complete with an antique bar that apparently came from somewhere in Newark. "And it was well-used, is the understanding we got," Keegan said, smiling. Now, they enjoy toasting with friends in the pub and dining just outside of it when the weather's nice.

The pub's original hardwood floors are still in place. And the wall dcor reflects the pub's history: A portrait of a family member who originally owned the house hangs near the bar, and a State of Ohio scroll Keegan found there has been framed and hung as well.
