  • If you are in the area it is worth a quick stop. Nice bathrooms and cute little park to get out and stretch your legs and take a break. Can have a picnic also.

  • They are not on a main road in the area. It is a short stop to walk all the around. Interesting that they are so old and still there.

  • The Bell's Tavern is enclosed by a fence to keep the structure away from vandals. There is a park here as well for the kids. I only stayed for 15min, so this is not a long stop, but I am glad I went. The structure is actually pretty big. Very cool to see and I am grateful to the city for preserving this piece of history.
  • This is neat to check out of you're already in the area, but not sure I would go out of my way to visit. There is a nice park area located behind the tavern that would be great for kids. The entire tavern is fenced off and only visible from behind the fence.
  • This is a beautiful well maintained park. The park is run and maintained by the city, they do not allow metal detecting which is sad for those of us wishing to preserve history. They have the right to prevent metal detecting, but the explanation I was given by the city's mayor was very contradicting. Considering that the park itself was built on this historical site. It is my opinion that it was desecration to put the park itself on the site. It separates the tavern from the grave site of the original tavern owners. Still a awsome place for the family.
  • Went here before Mammoth Cave National Park. Was glad I did as it helped me understand the historical significance of the reading and the distance people would travel to come to mammoth cave and then via stage coach leave bells tavern to visit the mine. For an 1800s structure you can tell it was impressively large. There are two nearby holes that have well covers too.
  • Cool historical stop if you are in the area. It's just the remains of a destroyed building from the 19th century so don't plan a day trip for this. Or even more than 30 - 45 minutes if you really like this type of attraction. Definitely worth the price of admission.
