11 - 16 Emmitt House Restaurant - This restored, circa 1861 hotel, once sitting on the bank of the Ohio and Erie Canal, features fine dining in an atmosphere of a bygone era. The walls are filled with pictures from the era and reflects its history as one of the Scioto Valley's finest hotels. The various dining rooms reflect the business that was conducted there such as the Drummers Room, where hardware and dry goods salesmen would lay out their ware for the merchants to buy. See more at

James Emmitt was the original owner when the hotel was built and was porported to be the Scioto Valley's first millionaire. Among the carpenters hired for the project was Madison Hemmings, son of Sally Hemmings, who claimed until his death to be the illegitimate son of Thomas Jefferson, and so the controversy continues to this day.

This is just one of the fascinating stories that can be heard, as you enjoy the fine dining here which includes everything from great steaks to seafood and Italian cuisine. The Emmitt is just one hour from Columbus on US Rt 23 at the 5th traffic light in Waverly. And as in the past, "Strangers Welcome".

30 Jingle Bell Lantern Tours - One of the more popular presentations of the Jingle Bell Weekend is the Lantern Tour. This year promises to be even better than the last one. Guests are invited to come join us as we listen to townsfold talk about their peers in the early days of Waverly.

One of the interesting practices of the residents in days gone by was to "go sipping." Since there was no radio and newspapers were not too informative of that day, it was one of the best ways to keep up to date about what was going on. Of course, those who went sipping would carry their gleanings back to their family members and to their friends in the form of exaggerated stories. A group of sixteen local actors will be participating in the script written and directed by Delmar Burkitt.

Customers are reminded that this is a nighttime walking tour and they should dress appropriately to be comfortable on the outdoor part of the program.

Lantern tours will be held on Sat. night, November 18 following the big Jingle Bell Parade. Tours will begin at 8:00, 8:30 and 9:00pm at the Canal Church of Christ on East North Street. Admission will be $6.00 per person. For more information contact Delmar Burkitt at 740-289-3570.
