Moore's Mountain Inn sits along the Yellow Breeches Creek in south-central Pennsylvania. This 1798 brownstone tavern has been graciously restored to include three charming guest rooms each with private bath. The owners are also avid gardeners and the landscaping reflects this.

We have a Mechanicsburg, PA mailing address, but we are located near the town of Lisburn on the corner of Moore’s Mountain Road and PA Route 114 (Cedars Rd). The inn is a brownstone with a wood-frame addition. A stone wall with a white horse fence atop surrounds the front gardens and grounds.
In 1798 Adam Brazier erected a brownstone tavern overlooking the Yellow Breeches Creek. Across the stream was New Lisburn, a Scott-Irish town established a half century earlier. Lisburn, as it is known today, was a thriving metropolis and a midway point for travelers going between Carlisle and York - Harrisburg wasn’t even on the map! The stone tavern, like most taverns of that era, doubled as an inn and for many years hosted area travelers.
The bustle around New Lisburn eventually disappeared and the tavern along with it. During most of its 200 year history, the structure has been used simply as a residence. However, there is also evidence that during that same period it served as a tannery, general store, and tobacco shop. There is little known about the inn during the Civil War period, but records show that Lisburn, and probably the tavern, was occupied for a short time by confederate troops.
In 1987 the structure was purchased by the Moore’s. They refurbished it and, in 1993, opened Moore’s Mountain Inn to revive a tradition started nearly 200 years before. “History is destined to repeat itself.” A saying which has certainly held true for Moore’s Mountain Inn. Two centuries after its construction, an old inn is once again offering hospitality and overnight stay to area travelers. And although we’ve never seen him, a previous owner reported encounters with a friendly ghost – perhaps old Adam Brazier himself is still keeping shop here!
